Scoping Period Extended for the Hemingway-Boulders and White Clouds Wilderness Management Plan

Ketchum, ID – The Forest Service and Bureau of Land Management are announcing the extension of the scoping period for the proposed wilderness management plan for the Hemingway-Boulders and White Clouds Wilderness areas. “A wilderness management plan guides the preservation, management, and use of wilderness to ensure it is unimpaired for future use and enjoyment as wilderness,” said Emily Simpson, wilderness planner. Simpson says the draft wilderness management plan will provide direction for managing the resources and uses within wilderness such as recreation, search and rescue, research, wildlife, vegetation, while preserving wilderness character.

“We’ve had several requests to extend our comment period and we want to be responsive to the publics’ needs,” said Simpson. To access the draft plan, or for more information on the planning process, the wilderness areas, and interactive maps, please visit the interagency project website at http://arcg.is/28Z6RVo. You may also request hard copies or CDs containing the document by contacting the Sawtooth National Forest Office at 208-737-3200.
