Snake River Protection Moves Forward

Snake River Legacy

Bridger-Teton National Forest yesterday released the draft Decision Notice for the Wild and Scenic Snake River Headwaters Forest Plan Amendment Environmental Assessment.   Jackson District Ranger Dale Deiter says the decision will result in a Forest Plan amendment and Comprehensive Resource Management Plan for the 315-miles of Wild and Scenic Rivers that occur on every district, except Kemmerer.  He explains that development of such a plan for the Snake River Headwaters, recently designated by Congress as a part of the National Wild and Scenic Rivers System, is mandated under the Wild and Scenic Rivers Act. Through several years of public and interagency discussions and workshops, a draft of the plan was created. It became clear that some additional management direction would need to be added to the Bridger-Teton’s Forest Plan, establishing new river-related management zones and also providing guidelines and new monitoring requirements to meet the intent of the Craig Thomas Snake Headwaters Legacy Act.  Deiter says the public now has 45 days in which to file an objection to the draft decision, and if no objections are filed, the decision will become a part of the overall Forest Plan. The Draft Decision Notice, along with the full text of the Forest Plan Amendment for Wild and Scenic Rivers management on the Bridger-Teton National Forest, is available online at  http://www.fs.usda.gov/projects/btnf/landmanagement/projects.

  • GPS will sometimes lead you to astray - August 29, 2014
    At the risk of sounding like I’ve been watching too much Top Gear, I need to go off on a bit of a rant right now. The good folks at Nissan let me drive a Titan for two full months, which was really nice of them. And it’s done a pretty good job of filling […]
