Hundreds have already weighed in on a study of the Custer Gallatin National Forest’s ecosystem and there’s still a day left to go.
Forest Service spokeswoman Mariah Leuschen-Lonergan said in an email that the forest has received more than 300 responses from the public on its draft assessment of the forest’s current conditions. The comment period closes today.
The document is part of the Custer Gallatin’s forest plan revision process. The Custer and Gallatin national forests were combined in 2014. Both have individual forest plans from the 1980s, and now the agency is working on a comprehensive plan. The agency is finishing the first year of a four-year rewriting process.
