Did you know the Great Burn could come away from forest planning a drastically different place?
Forest plans determine recommended wilderness boundaries, travel restrictions, and management priorities for the next 30 years. The Nez Perce-Clearwater National Forest is considering carving out large portions of the proposed Great Burn Wilderness, opening sensitive mountain goat and wolverine habitat to snowmobiles.
The Forest Service has scheduled open houses to gather public input. The Great Burn Conservation Alliance, along with conservation partners are joining forces to organize our own presentations in advance of the open houses to educate interested members and volunteers on these topics.
Following the workshop, we'll head over to the open house, where you'll have a chance to share your comments with the planning team through one-on-one dialogue and written comments.
Join us for the workshop!
Saturday February 22 from 9-10am at Goodworks Ventures, 129 W Alder St, Missoula
