Representatives from Idaho Sen. Jim Risch’s office and Friends of Scotchman Peaks Wilderness will host a Scotchman Peaks Wilderness Act informational meeting Jan. 11 at the Clark Fork High School.
The event is an opportunity for residents of Hope, Clark Fork and Eastern Bonner County to learn about the recently introduced bill. The local impact of the Idaho portion of the Scotchman Peaks being introduced to the National Wilderness Preservation System will also be discussed. After a short presentation and overview of the wilderness proposal, staff from Risch’s office and the Friends of Scotchman Peaks Wilderness will be on hand for questions, comments and further discussion.
The meeting begins at 6 p.m. in the Clark Fork Junior/Senior High School. Write to [email protected] for more information or call 208-290-1281.
