The annual public meeting about the Bob Marshall Wilderness Complex is scheduled for April 14 at the Seeley Lake Community Hall.

The public is being encouraged to attend and meet the National Forest Wilderness Managers and state Fish, Wildlife and Parks staff.

“This year is the 25th year that we will be collecting monitoring-data based on public participation and partnerships in managing the Bob Marshall Wilderness Complex and the wilderness plan," Deb Mucklow, BMWC lead district ranger, said in a statement.

The BMWC is comprised of the Bob Marshall Wilderness, Great Bear Wilderness and Scapegoat Wilderness. The complex comprises of an area of more than 1.5 million acres, making it the third largest wilderness complex in the lower 48 states. The area 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 newsletter, which is available on the Flathead National Forest web page under Special Places

The meeting will be held at the Seeley Lake Community Hall north of town on the east side of Montana Highway 83 near mile marker 15.

For more information about the public meeting, contact the Spotted Bear Ranger District at (406) 387-3800.
