WYOMING - Shoshone National Forest Announces Forest Plan Revision Meetings

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.)

Monday, February 28, 2011            6:00 pm to 8:00 pm

The Forest Service will present information about the revision process, a tentative timeline for completing the revised plan, what will and will not be decided in the revised forest plan and how the agency studies the social and economic effects of decisions. Forest Supervisor Joe Alexander, local district rangers and members of the planning team will be available to answer questions.

Additionally, the Government Cooperators' Work Group will meet on Thursday, March 3, 2011, at the Big Horn Federal meeting room in Thermopolis from 10:00 am until 3:00 pm. The public is welcome. At the end of the meeting, there will be time for nonmembers to make statements and ask questions.

CALIFORNIA - Help Preserve OHV Use On The Six Rivers National Forest
The Six Rivers National Forest in Northern California has a new Forest Supervisor, Merv George.
