Forest Service seeks input on grazing

2 allotments near Ketchum up for review


By EXPRESS STAFF

The Sawtooth National Forest is seeking public comment on updating management plans for two grazing allotments in the Trail Creek and Cove Creek drainages east of Ketchum.

Lava Lake Land and Livestock has been authorized to graze on 32,362 acres in the two allotments since 2001. The Ketchum Ranger District proposes to authorize domestic sheep grazing on both allotments at or below current levels.

Public scoping is the first step in the process. A brief document providing details for this project is available by contacting the ranger district office at 622-5371. Information can be obtained from Mike O'Farrell at 622-0082.
