**Roads Closed**

Bear Creek Road - Palisades Ranger Distict -  A part of the Bear Creek Road from the 058/076 junction (Snake River Road) to the 058/619 junction (Calamity Road), which provides access to the Calamity Campground, Day Use Area, Boat Ramp, and several summer home residences, is closed to all traffic. A significant runoff event resulted in water flowing under the roadway, which eroded the road prism, causing one lane to collapse and undercutting portions of the remaining paved lane.

Cooperating agencies fight fungus that kills bats

Gloved hands measuring a bats forearm

Just outside the mouth of a popular summer tourist attraction, the team tested the efficacy of a potentially lifesaving treatment for bats. The treatment is a vaccine that helps protect the animals from white-nose syndrome, which is caused by a fungal infection. It is one of the most devastating wildlife diseases and has killed millions of bats across North America since its emergence in 2007.
