River Plans Released For Review

Snake-River

Grand Teton and Yellowstone national parks, John D. Rockefeller, Jr. Memorial Parkway, the National Elk Refuge, and Bridger-Teton National Forest have released the Draft Snake River Headwaters Comprehensive River Management Plans 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 enabling the adoption of the river management plan. Federal officials explain that the Comprehensive River Management Plans were prepared for the 315-miles of designated wild and scenic rivers that have been managed by the various agencies since the passage of the Craig Thomas Snake Headwaters Legacy Act in 2009. The National Park Service and U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service have developed separate but concurrent plans to the forest plan for those river segments managed by the National Park Service and U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service. These comprehensive river management plans and the Forest Plan Amendment are intended to provide long-term guidance for protecting and enhancing the entire Snake River Headwaters. Public comment on the river management plans will be accepted until June 30th and public open houses are planned between now and then.

    As high pressure strengthens, warmer air from southwestern portions of the nation will move into the region today.  Conditions will also stay mainly dry throughout much of the state, but winds will be strong and gusty.  Parts of I-25 (Colorado state line to Casper) and I-80 (Cheyenne to Rawlins) could see gusting as high as […]
  • My new used truck may be the death of me - October 23, 2014
    Not long ago, I brought home a 1994 Ford F-250. It’s not much to look at, but it’s even worse to drive. About the only things it has going for it are that it’s mechanically sound, and it’s technically a vehicle. I’ve named it Clunk, for good reason. When you shift it into either drive […]
  • Quiet, Seasonal Weather Expected Today - October 22, 2014
