Kalispell, MT –April 23, 2019 – The Tally Lake Ranger District of the Flathead National Forest has released an environmental assessment for the Taylor Hellroaring Project, located northwest of Whitefish, Montana. Comments on the environmental assessment will be accepted for thirty days. Specific comments on the project with supporting reasoning that are submitted electronically to comments-northern-flathead-tally-lake@fs.fed.us, would be most helpful.

The project includes proposed vegetation/fuels management and wildlife habitat improvement work, as well as the construction of multi-use, non-motorized trails and the improvement of a parking area to a designated trailhead. This project has been developed in collaboration with Whitefish Legacy Partners and Montana Department of Natural Resources and Conservation. The project includes use of the Good Neighbor Authority.

The start of the environmental assessment’s thirty day comment period is officially calculated from the date following publication of the legal notice in the newspaper of record, The Daily Inter Lake. The EA is available online at www.fs.usda.gov/project/?project=50518. Information is also available at the Tally Lake Ranger Station in Kalispell, Montana.

The project was initiated and analyzed in 2018 under the former 1986 Flathead National Forest Land and Resource Management Plan, so analysis has been updated to be compliant with the new 2018 Flathead National Forest Plan.
