The Bridger-Teton National Forest has released the Draft Snake River Headwaters Comprehensive River Management Plan for public comment. Additionally, the Forest is releasing a Forest Plan Amendment/ Environmental Assessment required for the amendment to the Forest Plan to be subsequently approved. Forest officials explain that the Comprehensive River Management Plan and Forest Plan Amendment were prepared for the 315-miles of designated wild and scenic rivers that have been managed by the Bridger-Teton National Forest since the passage of the Craig Thomas Snake Headwaters Legacy Act in 2009. Both the National Park Service and U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service have developed separate but concurrent plans for the National Park Service and U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service managed river segments. These comprehensive river management plans and Forest Plan Amendment are intended to provide long-term guidance for protecting and enhancing the entire Snake River Headwaters. Public comment on the Forest’s river management plan will be accepted until June 30th and public open houses are planned between now and then.

  • Hunters must be conservationists first - October 20, 2014
    As hunters, it’s our responsibility to take care of the critters we hunt, as well as those we don’t. We have to obey the game laws. Police ourselves to be sure others respect the wildlife.
