Gallatin National Forest asking for public comment on revisions

Posted: Updated:

The Custer Gallatin National Forest invites public review and feedback on two Plan Revision products; the Wilderness Inventory and the draft Eligible Wild and Scenic Rivers.  Feedback is most useful by August 12, 2017.

The Wilderness Inventory identifies a broad sweep of lands that are generally unroaded and undeveloped.  The inventory areas will be further evaluated for wilderness character. The process will include interactive mapping system identifying the criteria and the lands that meet the criteria for the Wilderness Inventory and allows for public feedback. 

This system has found 30 rivers that are initially identified as Eligible Wild and Scenic Rivers.

Feedback may also be emailed to
