Comment sought on End of the World Project; public meeting on March 7

— Public comment is sought on the End of the World Project, proposed by the Salmon River Ranger District of the Nez Perce-Clearwater National Forests

The End of the World Project is located approximately six miles south of Grangeville, and the boundary encompasses about 49,565 acres within the Salmon River Ranger District. The project lies entirely within the Wildland Urban Interface (WUI) for the Grangeville area.

The project is proposed to reduce the risk or extent of or increase the resilience to insect and disease infestation; reduce the risk of wildfire to local communities and surrounding federal lands; restore forest vegetation, dry meadows, and grasslands to a healthy condition; and to improve water quality and aquatic habitats.

The detailed Proposed Action for Scoping document, and information, can be found online: Questions to Zoanne Anderson, team leader, or 208-963-4209.

A public meeting has been scheduled for Wednesday, March 7, at the Forest Service Office in Grangeville, 104 Airport Road, 6 to 7:30 p.m., to give an overview of the existing resource conditions, discuss the proposed action, and answer questions regarding the project.
