Hi all
Posting this with hopes that the sportsmen community here on NJ Hunter please consider to help support the proposed Forest Stewardship Plan for Sparta Mountain WMA as prepared by NJ Audubon and NJDFW by submitting a quick comment to NJDFW via the links below.

The plan was developed based upon an understanding of the needs of wildlife in the Highlands Region and with a specific focus on ensuring that forest health is improved. The plan seeks to addresses the long-term health of the forest and the critically important lack of young forest habitat by working to create new young forest habitat patches over the next ten years. This work will help not only forest health, but will provide key habitat components for many wildlife species, including game species such as Ruffed Grouse, American Woodcock, and Wild Turkey.

The deadline to submit a comment is March 1, 2016. To submit a comment click on this link NJDEP Division of Fish & Wildlife - Sparta Mountain WMA Forest Stewardship Plan Comment Form

For a webpage about the Sparta Mt WMA Forest Stewardship Plan, that includes a link to the plan for review, key points, and info about how to take action, as well as, a handout that is available for download, see Sparta Mountain WMA Forest Stewardship Plan

Groups showing support to encourage the NJDEP to adopt and implement the proposed Sparta Mountain Wildlife Management Area Forest Stewardship Plan are: Ruffed Grouse Society, Wild Turkey Federation, Trout Unlimited, NJ State Federation of Sportsmen's Clubs, The Wildlife Society, Conserve Wildlife Foundation of NJ, NJ Audubon, NJ Outdoors Alliance, Society of American Foresters, NJ Forestry Association, USFWS, Appalachian Mountain Joint Venture, Golden-Winged Warbler Working Group, and American Bird Conservancy. Please consider submitting a quick comment by the March 1 deadline to show your support for active conservation management to preserve NJ's natural heritage. Thank you!
