Wild and scenic rivers process, initial steps, out for review

The Wild and Scenic Rivers Process, including definitions for Outstanding Remarkable Values and the Region of Comparison is out for review thru March 3. The Wild and Scenic Rivers process, along with the Wilderness process (which will be forthcoming later in 2017) is one of many that ultimately gets folded into the larger Forest Plan Revision process taking place on the Custer Gallatin National Forest.  Forest Plan Revision is the overarching document that guides management direction on the Forest for the next decade or more.
“The public is invited to review and provide feedback on the wild and scenic rivers Outstanding Remarkable Values and Region of Comparison criteria.  Outstanding Remarkable value definitions start from our regulations and then are able to be customized to the local setting,” said Virginia Kelly, Forest Plan Revision Team Leader.  “The Region of Comparison is a context or area of land in which to examine the rivers on national forest system lands determining what is remarkable within that context.”   
The Wild and Scenic Rivers process will be covered briefly in public meetings and opportunities will exist later in the spring to provide feedback on the proposed eligible rivers as the process gets further along.  Feedback is best provided by visiting the interactive mapping system online and reviewing the rivers and then submitting feedback electronically at:  cgplanrevision@fs.fed.us or by mail or hand delivery to:  Custer Gallatin National Forest Supervisor’s Office, Attn:  Forest Plan Revision, 10 E Babcock, P.O. Box 130, Bozeman, MT 59771.  Please address feedback:  Wild & Scenic River Feedback. 
Public Meetings are set across the Custer Gallatin National Forest from Feb – April 2017 – additional information can be found online www.fs.usda.gov/custergallatin and click on Forest Plan Revision and Public Involvement.  Virtual opportunities are also available on select dates through the following link:  https://usfs.adobeconnect.com/cgpm-1000/.
