Glacier National Park wants to continue work on removing non-native lake trout from its waterways. Comments on the proposal are due by January 24 . . .
Glacier National Park is home to approximately one-third of the nation’s bull trout population that lives in natural, undammed lake systems.
That gives the park a critical role in regional bull trout recovery and long-term conservation, according to Glacier management assistant Denise Germann.
To that end, proposals to continue lake trout suppression on Quartz Lake and start lake trout removal on Logging Lake are now available for public review and comment.
Comments on the environmental assessment are due Jan. 22.
