Bugged! April 4 meeting for comment on infestation in drainages

Kooskia meeting set 5:30 to 7:30 p.m

— Community input is sought at a public meeting next Wednesday, April 4, regarding Red Moose Divide, a proposed project to address insect infestation in the South Fork Clearwater and Selway river drainages.

Organized by the Nez Perce-Clearwater National Forests, the meeting will be from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. at the Kooskia Ranger Station, 502 Lowry Street.

The Red Moose Divide project would propose activities within 65,000 acres of National Forest System lands in areas impacted by an infestation of spruce beetles along the divide between the Selway River and the South Fork of the Clearwater River, from Lookout Butte on the western edge to O’Hara Point on the eastern edge.

At the meeting, officials will introduce the potential project area, resource conditions, and desired outcomes, and will explain the collaborative process for developing and implementing the project. Attendees will have an opportunity to ask staff questions and learn more about the project.

For information: Sara Daugherty, NEPA Planner, project team lead, or (208) 926-6404.
