The increase in fire activity prompted a number of mandatory closures on the Idaho Panhandle National Forests.
In addition, the Forest Service has asked the public to voluntarily refrain from recreating on the entire forest. A mandatory forest-wide closure is not out of the question, so stay tuned.
In response, the Idaho Conservation League is canceling the remaining hikes in our North Idaho Adventure Series. We apologize to anyone who was interested in signing up for our remaining hikes, but the current danger is too high. It is also critical that we give firefighters the room they need to work.
