The public meeting is Nov.15, 2012, 5-7p.m at the Packwood Fire Hall, 12953 US Highway 12 Packwood, WA.
“The Forest Service places great value in engaging with local communities and interested stakeholders, and I am excited to hear what community members have to say regarding concerns or opportunities related to our Nisqually Thin project,” said District Ranger, Gar Abbas.
“This project is being designed to improve the Nisqually Basin ecosystem and would produce jobs and economic opportunities when implemented,” Abbas continued.
The project is located in the Big Creek and Berry Creek areas of the Nisqually River watershed. It is proposed to promote forest health, increase biological diversity, improve watershed conditions and contribute to local economies.
The meeting will provide an avenue for information exchange and input. Information about the project area and project proposal details will be presented. Comments concerning the project will be documented and considered as the project proposal and analysis is refined.
