Three local ranger districts on the Salmon-Challis National Forest will hold open houses during the month of June to interact with the public and discuss issues such as wildfires and recreation opportunities, U.S. Forest Service officials said in a press release. 

During each of the three open houses, members of the public will be able to interact with specialists from their local ranger district, visit stations that highlight some of the Forest Service’s top priorities and issues for the year and learn about what is planned for the rest of 2022.

The schedule of events includes:

  • 5-6:30 p.m., June 6, Challis Community Events Center, 411 Clinic Road, featuring the Challis-Yankee Fork and Middle Fork ranger districts.
  • 4:30-6 p.m., June 8, North Fork Ranger District, 11 Casey Road, North Fork.
  • 5:30-7:30 p.m., June 10, Lost River Ranger District, 716 W. Custer St., Mackay.

Additional open houses for the Salmon-Cobalt and Leadore Ranger District will be announced once the incoming district ranger arrives and coordinates with staff, Forest Service officials said.
