Dear BRC Action Alert Subscriber,

The Shoshone National Forest, located in northwestern Wyoming, is in the process of revising their Forest Plan. The Notice of Intent (NOI) to revise the Land and Resource Management Plan (Forest Plan) and prepare an Environmental Impact Statement was published in the Federal Register on September 24, 2010.

The Forest Service (FS) will hold a series of public meetings about its forest plan revision. (See meeting schedule below.)
