Flathead Forest Plan proposal: First ‘open house’ meeting scheduled for March 17

The Flathead National Forest has a series of public ‘open house’ meetings scheduled to provide information about the proposed Forest Plan revision. The first is on March 17, 5:30-7:30 p.m., at the Flathead NF Supervisors Office, 650 Wolfpack Way, Kalispell MT 59901.

These “community meetings are planned to provide additional information and address questions related to the Flathead NF plan revision and the amendment proposed action. The open houses will provide an opportunity for you to meet with subject matter specialists (wildlife biologist, forester, recreation specialist, fish biologist) and ask questions about the proposed management direction. There will not be any formal presentations at the open houses so stopping by at any time between 5:30 and 7:30 is fine.”
