In January, the Salmon-Challis National Forest kicked off a revision process for the forest plan. This plan guides how these lands will be cared for over the coming decades. Forest plan revisions don’t happen very often—the last time was nearly 40 years ago—so we’re asking you to join the Idaho Conservation League in engaging in this important process.
On Thursday, April 27, the Salmon Challis Planning team will come to Ketchum to provide updates on the planning status. They will discuss their next steps for inventory of recommended wilderness, wild and scenic rivers and evaluation of species of conservation concern. This is your opportunity to highlight areas that are important to you or places you would like to see preserved for their wildness, remoteness and their conservation value.
Join Us at Our ICL Pre-meeting to Learn More
We invite you to our informational event ahead of the actual Forest Service meeting. We’ll meet at the ICL office at 5 pm to discuss the background and conservation importance of recommended wilderness, wild and scenic rivers and species of conservation concern. This information is designed to bring you up to speed on these issues and prep you for meeting at 6 pm with the Salmon-Challis Forest team.
This is your chance to help make a difference in shaping the future of places like the Pioneer Mountains, Mount Borah, Salmon River and Pahsimeroi Valley. We know you care about your public lands—so make this a priority on Thursday, April 27.
Rafting on the Middle Fork Salmon, exploring high alpine lakes in the Pioneers, or overlooking the vast wildlands from atop Mount Borah—these experiences make Idaho unlike any other place in our country. And ensuring that these public lands are here for us, now and for future generations, is what we the ICL community care passionately about.
