A public meeting will unveil a new Bitterroot National Forest project in the Sapphire Mountains around Willow Mountain.

The meeting will be Tuesday, April 18, from 6:30 p.m. to 8 p.m. at the Corvallis High School library.

The Bitterroot National Forest has started the planning for the “Gold Butterfly” forest project, which will include “timber harvests and prescribed fire to improve forest and watershed resilience,” according to a news release from Tod McKay.

The acreage is between Burnt Fork and St. Clair Creeks on the east side of the Bitterroot Valley and Stevensville District Ranger Tami Sabol will give an overview of the project at the meeting.

McKay wrote that invitations have been sent to landowners, agencies and government officials to attend the meeting.

Sara Grove at the Stevensville Ranger Station is the Team Leader. For more information, check the Bitterroot National Forest website Gold Butterfly page.
