Special Orders Enacted on the Bridger-Teton National Forest

Special orders are put into effect to address particular management problems. Special Orders may be enacted on several levels including Nationally (e.g. from the Washington office effecting all National Forests), Multi-Regional (e.g. GYCC orders), Regional (e.g. Region 4), Forest (e.g. Bridger-Teton N.F.), and District levels (e.g. Kemmerer, Jackson, etc.). Special orders are signed by Regional Foresters and/or Forest Supervisors and vary in duration. Special orders are posted at Forest Service Ranger District offices and Forest Supervisors offices in the office nearest to the area effected, or they may be posted at the Ranger Station and the actual site.


Some of the reasons for implementation of special orders is to protect public safety, prevent resource damage, preserve a particular areas setting (such as non motorized), protect wildlife populations and many other reasons. Special orders may prohibit a specific activity or impose permit requirements. Some examples of permits that may be required are hiking, camping or burning permits.
