PUBLIC COMMENT SOUGHT

Montana Fish, Wildlife & Parks is extending the public comment period for the Doney Lake Forest Habitat Improvement Project Draft Environmental Assessment on the Blackfoot-Clearwater Wildlife Management Area from 15 to 30 days. The new deadline to submit comments is Feb. 4th, 2023. Montana Fish, Wildlife & Parks (FWP) invites public review of the Doney Lake Forest Habitat Improvement Project on the Blackfoot-Clearwater Wildlife Management Area (BCWMA). FWP is proposing to conduct forested habitat improvement treatments on approximately 1,500 acres on the Ovando Mountain Unit of the BCWMA for the purpose of: improving forage production for big game, nongame wildlife that are dependent on old-growth ponderosa pine and western larch, promoting a stand structure that would allow fire to burn at low-severity, promoting aspen growth and regeneration, and reducing stand susceptibility to bark beetle infestation and armillaria root disease. A draft environmental assessment (EA) has been prepared describing this proposal. The EA may be obtained by mail from Region 2 FWP, 3201 Spurgin Rd., Missoula 59804; by phoning 406-542-5542; by emailing fwprg22@mt.gov or by viewing FWP’s website http://fwp.mt.gov (“News and Public Notices,” then “Public Notices”). Comments may be made online on the EA’s webpage or may be directed to Mike Ebinger at the mail or email addresses above. Comments must be received by FWP no later than February 4, 2023 by 5 p.m. Published Jan. 19, Jan. 26, 2023 MNAXLP
