This document is result of those who gathered sitting in a circle/council/counsel with the Forest Service Resource Advisors and Law Enforcement. If there is no circle, no ‘alternative manner’, then there may not be an Operation Plan. The Operation Plan is an important alternative to a signed Noncommercial Use Special Use Permit Application (or the official title is something like that). The circle is an alternative manner which is used to communicate about the ‘alternative method’ Operation Plan. NOTE: the Closure Order at the end about drugs, paraphernalia, and alcohol —still illegal on public lands managed by the Federal Govt, even if the gathering site is a Medical Cannabis state.
