CALIFORNIA - Smith River NRA Restoration and Motorized Travel Management Workshop Announced

Dear BRC Action Alert Subscriber,

The Six Rivers National Forest is hosting a workshop regarding the Smith River National Recreation Area (NRA) Restoration and Motorized Travel Management Project. The purpose of the workshop is to share the results received from public scoping and provide an opportunity to have informal dialogue about the significant issues, proposed alternatives, and how to provide comment on the Draft Environmental Impact Statement (DEIS).

The workshop will be held on August 7, 2013, from 6:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. at the Mountain Elementary School, 55 Azalea Lane, Gasquet, California.

This motorized travel management project proposes to make limited changes to the National Forest Transportation System in order to: provide motorized access to dispersed recreation opportunities (camping, hunting, fishing, hiking, horseback riding, etc.); provide a diversity of motorized recreation opportunities; provide for administrative needs, and reduce ecological and cultural resource risk and maintenance costs. 

For more information about the workshop, contact Christy Prescott, Project Team Leader, at 707-441-3661.

Thanks in advance and, as always, if you have any questions or concerns, please contact BRC.
