The Jackson Demonstration State Forest Advisory Group,
known affectionately as the JAG, was authorized by the management plan
for Jackson Forest approved in January, 2008.

recommend changes to the management plan to the Director of Cal Fire and

Members were appointed by the Director and
confirmed by the Board. The JAG currently has 13 members
(out of 14 authorized). Members represent a broad cross section of
interests in Jackson Forest. Members were drawn from the timber and
logging industry, environmental and conservation organizations,
scientific and research fields, and recreation representatives. All
members are to represent the public, not the interests with which they
may be affiliated. Members.
All meetings will be open to the
public, and the advisory group will organize subcommittees that will
include non-group members with relevant interest and expertise.
