The Bozeman Ranger District is discussing a thinning project in the Schlasman Creek area near Bridger Bowl.
The purpose of the South Bridger Interface Project is to reduce the amount of mortality of insects such as spruce bud worms in the area.
The project would thin 250 acres between private lands and the national forest lands.
"I think it's a great project. I think it's really what we need to do to be good neighbors," said Lisa Stoeffler, Bozeman District Ranger.
The project is expected to begin this fall and last for two years.
The project is open for public comment until March 16th.
