With more than 2,500 miles of roads, the Mt. Baker-Snoqualmie National Forest has an extensive road system that supports a variety of public needs, from recreation to resource extraction. Although the road network provides access to far reaches of the Mt. Baker-Snoqualmie National Forest, it is not sustainable ecologically or economically.
In addition to analyzing the impact of the road system on watershed health and wildlife habitat, the Mt. Baker-Snoqualmie National Forest (MBSNF) is working to understand community interests, concerns and where access is needed in the future.
Last year through the Sustainable Roads Cadre, we helped the Forest Service host an online survey and multiple public meetings to hear from the public about what access is important to them and how they felt the forest should reach a sustainable road system.
Now is your chance to see how that feedback is being interpreted on the forest through analysis and maps. Attend one of eight public meetings this summer to see the results of the public feedback, get an update on the process to design a sustainable roads system in Mt. Baker-Snoqualmie National Forest, and provide further input on next steps.
Please RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org to ensure a spot. Attendance is on a first-come basis.
Spread the word to let your friends, family and community know! These meeting will help the MBSNF Sustainable Roads Cadre look ahead to how they can create a sustainable road system that the National Forest can afford, regularly maintain and helps the environment, including fish and wildlife.
