The Ketchum Ranger District (KRD) and the BLM Shoshone Field Office (SFO) are hosting an Open House on December 9th from 4:00 PM to 5:30 PM at the Community Library in Ketchum. Representatives from KRD and the SFO will be in attendance to answer questions and discuss the proposed activities.
The Open House is being held to get comments and to help the public understand the proposed project regarding an environmental assessment on a shared stewardship project to improve forest health within and adjacent to the Bald Mountain Ski Area. The proposed action is intended to remove insect infested, diseased, and dead trees, improve forest health, increase resilience to disturbance, reduce hazardous fuels, and initiate regeneration of forest stands. A detailed description of the proposal can be found on the project webpage at https://www.fs.usda.gov/project/?project=57171.
