The Iron Mask Planning Area is located near Townsend and includes approximately 26,397 acres of land. In the EA, the BLM is studying such issues as travel management, grazing authorizations and vegetation treatments. Public comments will be taken for 45 days, beginning on June 6, 2014, and ending on July 22, 2014. The EA is available at the Butte Field Office (BFO) and online at the office's website at http://blm.gov/cyld.
In addition to the 45-day comment period, the BLM will host an open house to discuss the Iron Mask Planning Area EA and to answer questions about the proposed projects in the planning area. The open house is scheduled for June 25, 2014, from 5-7 p.m. at the U.S. Forest Service, Townsend Ranger District Office, 415 S. Front St. in Townsend, Montana.
