The Sawtooth National Recreation Area has released a Scoping Proposed Action for an SNRA Outfitter and Guide Management Plan. There is a short turnaround time to provide comment/feedback to the Forest Service.
As Outfitters and Guides our voices are stronger together.
Please take the time to complete ALL three (3) of the actions below.
The form is a very broadly framed outline for permitee insight/comment.
When your submit the form, your comments will be sent to IOGA.
This is not the official USFS comment form. you must submit your official comments to the USFS/SNRA independently before May 2.
IOGA will compile and review all feedback received from SNRA permittees (who submit the form linked above) in order to be able to present the SNRA a summary of common concerns, questions, issues and themes.
The goal is to be able to identify 'overarching' questions or concerns from the industry/permitees rather than operationally specific ones.
2. Attend/participate in the meeting
Date/ time: Info below. We will use your feedback on the plan to create an agenda of issues to discuss.
If we (IOGA) get enough survey responses and otherwise hear from enough of you that you're interested, we are open to setting up a meeting with just SNRA permittees/outfitters in advance of the Zoom meeting with SNRA staff.
If you are not able to access the online form, comments may also be submitted by regular mail to Sawtooth NRA Headquarters Office; Attention: Outfitter and Guide Management Plan Comments; 5 North Fork Canyon Road; Ketchum, ID 83340.
For additional information, please contact Susan James (Recreation Program Manager, email@example.com).
