The public is invited to the annual Bob Marshall Wilderness Complex (BMWC) Public Meeting on April 14, 2012, at the Seeley Lake Community Hall in Seeley Lake, Montana. The Community Hall is located just north of the town of Seeley Lake on the east side of Montana Highway 83 near mile marker 15.
“This year is the twenty-fifth year that we will be collecting monitoring-data based on public participation and partnerships in managing the Bob Marshall Wilderness Complex and the wilderness plan,” said Deb Mucklow, BMWC Lead District Ranger.
The BMWC is comprised of the Bob Marshall Wilderness, Great Bear Wilderness, and Scapegoat Wilderness. Together they comprise an area of more than 1.5 million acres. This is the third largest wilderness complex in the lower 48 states. The complex is managed by four national forests (Flathead, Lolo, Helena, and Lewis & Clark) and five ranger districts (Spotted Bear, Hungry Horse, Seeley Lake, Lincoln, and Rocky Mountain.)
Recently the Forest managers and Fish and Wildlife staff prepared the annual BMWC newsletter. The newsletter is available on the Flathead National Forest web page under Special Places (http://www.fs.usda.gov/attmain/flathead/specialplaces). This newsletter gives background and highlights of information that will be shared at the public meeting.
For additional information, please contact the Spotted Bear Ranger District at (406) 387-3800.
