KALISPELL, MONT. – The public is invited to spend a Flathead Forest Friday breakfast with Swan Lake District Ranger Rich Kehr in Bigfork at the Echo Lake Café (1195 Montana 83/Swan Highway) starting at 7:00 a.m. on Friday, March 8, 2013. This is an opportunity to hear from the district ranger on current Swan Lake projects and to provide feedback on forest issues in a casual setting.
The Swan Lake Ranger Station is 20 miles south of Kalispell, on the eastern shores of Flathead Lake in Big Fork, Montana. The Swan Lake Ranger District contains the headwaters of Swan River, a portion of the Mission Mountain Wilderness, the Swan Mountain Range, and part of the Jewel Basin Hiking Area. Boundaries for the district lie along Flathead Lake and the Flathead Indian Reservation. The Swan-Clearwater Divide is an area used by grizzly bears as a travel corridor between the Mission Mountains and the Swan Mountain Range.
Every other month, the Forest Service will coordinate a no-host breakfast meeting at a local restaurant with the goal of sharing good food, great company, and a little information about what’s happening on our National Forest. We hope the event will be a great way to keep one another informed on public land management opportunities and challenges that are important to us all.
If you plan to attend or have any questions, please notify Public Affairs Officer Wade Muehlhof email@example.com or (406) 758-5252. Your response allows us to plan accordingly with the restaurant.
