Open Houses Planned On Shoshone Nat’l Forest Plan
The U.S. Forest Service is holding a series of open houses to discuss an early version of a draft management plan for the Shoshone National Forest.
The first gathering will be held Tuesday in Dubois from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. at the Headwaters Art and Convention Center. Those interested can drop by any time during that period.
The Powell Tribune reported that the current version of the proposal wouldn't change much of the forest's current plan, which was completed in 1986. No new roadless or wilderness areas are on the table and the revised plans won't change oil and gas leasing in the forest.
Open houses are also planned Wednesday in Lander, Thursday in Thermopolis and Monday in Cody.
The official draft plan will be released in June.
