Attend this upcoming public meeting to be part of the conversation about wilderness and how your public lands are managed!
The Salmon-Challis National Forest is going through a wilderness evaluation process as part of their ongoing forest plan revision. During this process, the Forest Service looks for lands that may be suitable for wilderness designation, which lays the groundwork for protecting beautiful wild places for generations to come. Areas recommended for wilderness protection in the final forest plan still require an act of Congress to be formally protected as wilderness. This public meeting is a great opportunity to hear from the Forest Service how they are evaluating lands for their wilderness character.
Throughout this process, the Forest Service is encouraging public to provide input. Specifically, they are looking for information on the following by January 31, 2019:
- What about these evaluation areas detract from or contribute to wilderness character or manageability?
- What other information about these areas should be considered when determining what areas will move forward for analysis?
Attend this public meeting to join the conversation and learn about these important management plans!
