Today the Custer Gallatin National Forest Plan Revision Team is releasing the Draft Plan and Draft Environmental Impact Statement initiating a 90-day public comment period running March 1 – June 5, 2019.

The Forest has worked hard with the public, stakeholders, collaborative groups, county commissioners, state, local, federal and Tribal governments to bring together this draft plan with four action alternatives and a “no-action” alternative analyzed.

“We are looking forward to specific feedback on these documents,”

The Forest will be hosting 10 public meetings, 8 webinars and 10 resource-specific podcasts available for download (March 18th).

“The main focus of the 4-H Leadership Awareness Weekend this year was learning about parliamentary procedure, which I believe every individual should learn and understand.Marie Kraemer, 4-H’er

“Public comment is vital to refining our final plan and final environmental impact statement. We hope folks will join us for one of the many opportunities to listen, understand and ask questions,” said Forest Supervisor Mary Erickson.
