March 9 public meeting on USFS Center Johnson Project

— A public meeting is set for Thursday, March 9, for information on the proposed Center Johnson Project. The meeting runs 6-8 p.m. at the Slate Creek Ranger Station, 304 Slate Creek Road, and is sponsored by the Salmon River Ranger District of the Nez Perce-Clearwater National Forests.

The project area is located approximately three miles west of Slate Creek, Idaho, entirely on National Forest System lands in Idaho County and administered by the Nez Perce-Clearwater National Forests. The project area includes Deer, Johnson, Joe, Rhett, Sherwin and Christie creeks, tributaries to the Lower Salmon River. The primary purposes of the proposed project are to reduce the risk and extent of insect and disease infestation of the landscape and to reduce the risk of wildfire.
