The Caribou-Targhee National Forest (CTNF) and Teton County Fire & Rescue would like to invite you to a public meeting on Tuesday, July 16 from 6:00 - 8:00 PM.
CTNF Fire Managers will provide an update on project status and potential treatments planned for the South Valley Hazardous Fuels Reduction Project. Proposed project treatments were designed with the feedback from previous public meetings and treatments include prescribed fire and commercial timber harvest. The project area spans from Grove Creek south to Highway 31 and then east to Mike Harris Campground with treatments proposed along the CTNF and private property boundary (See Map).
Additionally, Teton County Fire & Rescue would like to provide the community with information on how to make your home defensible from a wildland fire. If you own property that adjoins the CTNF in southern Teton County, ID, you may be eligible for assistance to reduce hazardous fuels/vegetation on your property. A representative of Teton County Fire & Rescue will be available to explain the project and how you may participate. (Funding for this project is provided by the US Forest Service in cooperation with the Idaho Department of Lands).
Please meet at the Teton County Fire Station #2, Victor, ID. If desired Fire Managers will take participants to past CTNF fuels mitigation treatments to display the types of treatments proposed within the South Valley Hazardous Fuels Reduction Project.
We look forward to seeing you on July 16 and encourage you to forward this invitation to others that might be interested.
If you have additional questions about the event please call the Teton Basin Ranger District Office at 208-354-2312.
