The Forest Service's website for the Secure Rural Schools and Community Self-Determination Act program, which is charged with providing funds from the National Forest lands to schools and roads in rural communities, explains why they want to sell off land: revenues from logging are down and they need the money.

Note there is information here about how citizens can comment on this proposed land sale: we have 30 days. Also note although the list of properties is identified only by parcel numbers, there will be maps available sometime soon so at least we might be able to tell whether it's land next door to us that might be on the block.
