Resource specialists and the District Ranger will be on hand to discuss initial ideas for the project and invite anyone interested to attend a meeting. The main goal is to work with the community, creating a healthy forest landscape that is more resilient to a variety of disturbances including forest insects and diseases, wildfire, wind, flood, drought and other weather related impacts. In the spring and summer, a series of field tours will take place during the public comment periods.
For additional information on each public meeting contact District Ranger Alex Sienkiewicz or Fire Information and Education Specialist, Karen Tuscano at 406-932-5155. For general information on the Gallatin National Forest visit www.fs.usda.gov/gallatin.
