Meeting set to discuss travel plan


By JASON KAUFFMAN

During the past two decades, the amount of motorized use on national forest lands has increased dramatically.

At an open house scheduled from 4 p.m. to 8 p.m. Wednesday, Dec. 13, the public will have the chance to discuss motorized use in the Salmon-Challis National Forest.

The open house will be held at the forest's Lost River Ranger District office in Mackay.

The Salmon-Challis National Forest is in the midst of developing a new travel plan to regulate motorized vehicle use. The Lost River Ranger District, which includes more than 800,000 acres of national forest lands in the Big and Little Lost River drainages, is one of the areas that will be covered by the new plan.

"This is an important opportunity for people to share their comments, concerns and ideas relating to the management of motorized vehicles," acting District Ranger Bart Gamett said. "We are also seeking your thoughts on specific roads and trails in the district."

For additional information, contact Bart Gamett at (208) 588-3400.
