Motorized travel through Shoshone National Forest; virtual meetings begin this week

    Now in its fifth year, the Travel Management Planning in the Shoshone National Forest is moving along as the Preliminary Environmental Assessment was released at the end of last month opening a 30-day public comment period.

    Three virtual meetings this week will focus on portions of the Preliminary Environmental Assessment for a specific district or zone of the Shoshone National Forest. There will be a question and answer session during each of the three meetings.

    What is this

    The Travel Management Planning is to “designate a sustainable system of roads, trails, and areas that are open for motor vehicle use with public involvement,” according to the Shoshone National Forest.

    This analysis and any additional public input will inform the final determination of motorized use on roads, trails, and areas of the Shoshone National Forest.

    If you are unable to attend the meetings at the scheduled times, recordings will be posted on the Shoshone National Forest website as well as on Facebook.
