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.
The Missoula County Sheriff's/ Coroner's Office has identified the victim in the shooting at the Fox Club in Missoula as Christopher Michael Hymel, a 23-year-old Louisiana male.
The body of 19-year-old, Trevor Ball was recovered today at approximately 12:26 p.m. Sergeant Phil Fortner with the Madison County Sheriff's department said Ball's body was recovered near the lower end of Ennis Lake, an area that is quite deeper than the rest of the lake.
