Meeting set to discuss revision of Shoshone National Forest plan

The Shoshone National Forest and representatives of cooperating agencies have organized a public meeting next week regarding revision of the Shoshone National Forest plan.

The discussion will focus on six alternatives the agency has developed. Forest Service specialists have been reviewing public comments the agency received on the proposed draft plan. Over the past month, those comments were used to develop a range of alternatives to the current plan. The effects of the alternatives will be analyzed in a draft environmental impact statement (EIS). The public comment period on the EIS will begin in June, 2012, and will last for 90 days.

The meeting will take place on March 7 and 8 at Big Horn Federal in Thermopolis. Meeting times are 10 am to 5:30 pm on March 7 and 8 am to noon on March 8.

The public is invited to attend both days.
