Bridger-Teton Seeks comments on Invasive Plant Management Project

UPDATE 4:15 p.m.: Drivers say the road is open again and traffic is moving.

JACKSON, WY — The Bridger-Teton National Forest (BTNF) is proposing to treat invasive plant species with a combination of manual, mechanical, biological, aerial, and ground herbicide applications over the next 10-15 years. But first, they’re asking for your input.

BTNF has prepared a draft environmental impact statement for the Invasive Plant Management project, but the draft is subject to an objection process.

The public is now invited to read the draft and supporting documentation online and submit public comments. Anyone with comments on the proposal is asked to submit them in writing or electronically by May 20.

While comments will be accepted any time during the process, they must be submitted by May 20 to make it into the Federal Register.

Please address comments as attention: Forest Supervisor Patricia O’Connor, PO Box 1888, Jackson, WY 83001. The office business hours for those submitting hand-delivered comments are 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Monday through Friday, excluding holidays. Electronic comments must be submitted to: comments-intermtn-bridger-teton@fs.fed.us. Please write “Invasive Plant Management” in the subject line when providing electronic comments, or on the envelope when replying by mail. An objection period, if required, will follow the regulation found in §218.7. For objection eligibility (§218.5), only those who have submitted timely, specific written comments during any designated opportunity for public comment may file an objection.

If you would like more information or have questions relating to this proposal, please contact Chad Hayward at 307-276-5817 or chayward@fs.fed.us.
