Bump. Comments are due tonight at midnight, more info cross-posted from Montana:

Forest plan revision page:
https://www.fs.usda.gov/detail/custe...d=fseprd482956
Plan docs:
https://www.fs.usda.gov/detail/custe...d=fseprd567778

In the proposed action, sections that may be of particular interest:
p. 70, Roads & Trails
p. 74, Recreation
p. 92, Recommended Wilderness
p. 95, Wild & Scenic Rivers
p. 103, Recreation Emphasis Areas (Cooke is cited here, which is probably a good thing)

How to comment:
https://www.fs.usda.gov/detail/custe...d=fseprd567806

Note that commenting now is the best way to have standing should (when) the plan eventually gets litigated.

Please provide constructive comments with rationale and cite particular elements of the plan that you'd change; mine will focus on meeting the growing demand for motorized recreation (and "Semi-Primitive Motorized" areas as defined in the maps) as a way to keep people engaged with their forests and connected to nature, regardless of how they get there. Also, providing more motorized recreation infrastructure (roads and trails) spreads out the summer impact and thus reduces the point impact while maintaining the forest experience for visitors (perhaps not directly relevant to over-snow use, but definitely relevant to multi-use endeavors in general).

And the next set of meetings is April 21 (in Bozeman) and April 28 (Billings). Not as much of a range of time and place options this time around, so please show up if you can; if you can't get there in person, please consider participating online.

Thanks.
