The public is invited to the annual Bob Marshall Wilderness Complex meeting on Saturday, April 11 starting at 10 a.m. at the Choteau Library in Choteau.

“This is a great annual opportunity to meet with the National Forest Wilderness Managers and Montana Fish and Wildlife staff,” says Deb Mucklow, Spotted Bear district ranger. “The challenges of managing wilderness are often not understood. Historically the participants at this annual meeting have helped with solutions or ideas that we as managers may be able to incorporate.”

Participants will be asked to share how they contribute to the wilderness and sustaining the character of the Bob Marshall Wilderness Complex. In addition, updates will be provided on specific activities and projects, and ongoing monitoring across the Bob Marshall Wilderness Complex.

The Bob Marshall Wilderness Complex is comprised of the Bob Marshall Wilderness, Great Bear Wilderness, and Scapegoat Wilderness and jointly they are 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 forest managers and Fish and Wildlife staff prepared the annual BMWC newsletter.
