Join Idaho Conservation League and the Greater Yellowstone Coalition for a workshop on the Kilgore proiect, a mining exploration proposal that threatens Idaho’s public lands, wildlife, and water. You’ll hear from ICL and GYC staff about the Kilgore project and learn tips about crafting your personal comments to the U.S. Forest Service.
In January 2021, the U.S. Forest Service released a new Draft Environmental Assessment for a gold exploration proposal in the Centennial Mountains near Kilgore, north of Idaho Falls on the Caribou-Targhee National Forest. The proposed intensive road construction and exploratory drilling would degrade important habitat for grizzly bears, lynx, whitebark pine, and Yellowstone cutthroat trout. Now, there is an opportunity for Idahoans to weigh in on the proposed exploration project and voice their concerns about its impacts to the area’s water, wildlife, and outdoor recreation access.
Join us for this informative and empowering workshop to speak up for Idaho’s public lands.
