Wild and Scenic River Inventory Story Map

The Bridger-Teton National Forest is seeking public review of the list of rivers to be studied and seeking public comment on the draft process that will be used to evaluate a river’s eligibility for further consideration as a Wild and Scenic River. A "story map" has been created to provide information about the study process, allow people to interact with a map of the rivers, and provide comments. The public comment portal of the story map will remain open through the summer, however comments received by July 19th, 2019 will be most useful moving forward. The public is asked to comment through the Story Map link but comments may also be submitted to the Bridger-Teton National Forest by mail.  ​
