IDAHO -  Nez Perce-Clearwater NF Forest Plan Revision Collaborative Sessions Rescheduled to 2014

Greetings BRC Action Alert Subscribers,

The Nez Perce-Clearwater Forest Plan Revision collaborative sessions planned for November 16 in Orofino, and December 14 in Grangeville, are cancelled due to scheduling conflicts.

The Forests have been collaborating with the public in development of their Forest Plan.  Approximately 50 to 60 people attended the monthly meetings through the winter and spring and participated in group discussions on proposed plan components.

Forest Supervisor Rick Brazell shared, "First of all I want to personally thank each of you for your continuing commitment to our collaboration process.  My team worked hard over this last summer on resource integration.  We looked forward to sharing that with you this fall.  However, we couldn't have predicted the effect of the recent furlough that cancelled our previously scheduled dates.  It appears that rescheduling these sessions in November and December  is just proving to be too difficult for many unless they give up important personal commitments, and especially during the busy holiday season."

Collaborative sessions are planned in January and February, 2014, and perhaps a wrap-up session will be held in March. Those dates will be firmed up soon.

For more information on these collaborative meetings, or how you can participate outside of the meetings, please contact Carol Hennessey, Forest Plan Revision Collaboration Coordinator, at 208-935-4270 or email at You can also visit the Forest Plan Revision website at

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

Recently, The BlueRibbon Coalition (BRC) filed a complaint against the Federal government to challenge the arbitrary closure of, "Trail 38," a high value single-track motorcycle trail in Wyoming. The BRC Legal Program is representing a local AMA District club and local users in the case. "Though the trail mileage is small, the stakes are high," said J.R. Riggins, a plaintiff in the suit and Wyoming dirt bike rider. "The Forest Service apparently thought it could fly under the radar and close this trail without meaningful
