The Forest Service and Bureau of Land Management are announcing the availability of 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. The draft wilderness management plan provides direction for managing the resources and uses within wilderness: recreation, search and rescue, research, wildlife, vegetation, while preserving wilderness character.

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. You may also request hard copies or CDs containing the document by contacting the Sawtooth National Forest Office at 208-737-3200.

Comments concerning this action will be most useful if received by January 31, 2016, through one of the following methods:
