— Community members are invited to a public meeting and field trip to learn more about and provide input on a potential Forest Service project south of Grangeville.

The meeting will be next Wednesday, Oct. 4, 6–8 p.m. at the Nez Perce-Clearwater National Forests Grangeville Office, 104 Airport Road.

The field trip will be Tuesday, Oct. 10, 9 a.m.–3 p.m. Participants will meet at the Nez Perce-Clearwater National Forests Grangeville Office at 9 a.m. before heading to the field site. Participants should plan to take their own vehicles; carpooling is encouraged. Pack lunch and plenty of water.

The potential project, called End of the World, is located south of Grangeville. The approximately 49,500-acre project would address forest health and hazardous fuel concerns in the project area. Information is online at https://www.fs.usda.gov/project/?project=52541.

At the community meeting, officials will introduce the potential project area, resource conditions, and desired outcomes, while explaining the collaborative process for developing and implementing the project. During the field trip, officials will take the public to the proposed project area to discuss current conditions and potential treatment options and answer questions from the public.

Those planning to attend the Oct. 10 field trip, RSVP to Zoanne Anderson, team lead, (zanderson@fs.fed.us or 208-963-4209), so officials can estimate attendees. Contact her also for project questions.
