Swan Lake Ranger District to Host Meeting on Beaver Creek Restoration Activities

By Beacon Staff

The Swan Lake Ranger District of the Flathead National Forest has scheduled a public meeting to receive input on an ongoing collaborative effort to assess restoration opportunities in the Beaver Creek area.

This area is located in the southernmost portion of the district, bordered by Lindbergh Lake and the Mission Mountains to the west, the Swan River to the north, Highway 83 to the east, and the Lolo National Forest to the south.

This area lies within the boundaries of the southwest Crown of the Continent Collaborative Forest Landscape Restoration Program, which aims to provide funding for the implementation of collaborative science based ecosystem restoration activities in forested landscapes.

The meeting is scheduled for Wednesday, Dec. 4, at the Swan Valley Community Hall in Condon, Montana from 3-5 p.m. The public will have an opportunity to engage with Forest Service specialists working on the assessment and considering activities in this area.
