Forest to host fall travel management meetingsSep 20, 2015 From staff reports
Two public sessions will be held next week in Fremont County.
The Shoshone National Forest is holding public meetings in September as a next step in the travel management process.
The public is invited to bring any proposed changes to the existing travel system to these meetings. This includes either adding new routes or removing existing routes.
The proposals will be used to help develop a proposed action and alternatives for the upcoming environmental analysis necessary for the travel management process.
Meetings will be held at the following times and locations in Fremont County:
- 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. Thursday at the Headwaters Arts and Conference Center, 20 Stalnaker St., Dubois.
- 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. Friday at the Lander Community and Convention Center, 950 Buena Vista Drive.
To allow for proper planning and adequate space for the meetings, attendees should RSVP by Tuesday to the Wind River Ranger District at 455-2466 or the Washakie Ranger District at 332-5460.
People wishing to present a proposal should contact the appropriate district office with what might be needed (projector, screen, etc.) to ensure that the required equipment is available for use at the meeting.
Through the travel management process, the Shoshone National Forest is working collaboratively to find opportunities for motorized trails that fit with the forest's plan direction and do not take away from other uses or change the backcountry character of the Shoshone National Forest.
