I copied this from an e mail alert I got from NRA. It would be good for hunters to be well represented at these meetings.
FOREST SERVICE PLAN NEEDS CRUCIAL INPUT FROM SPORTSMEN

The Pike and San Isabel National Forests in Colorado are developing a management plan to shape the kinds of uses allowed on these Forests for the next 15 years. Seven public meetings are scheduled in January and February to give the public an opportunity to state how they want the Forests to be managed. The last time the management plan was updated was in 1984, so it is likely that the new plan will incorporate some significant changes. It is vital that sportsmen and women participate in the process to ensure that access and opportunities for hunting and recreational shooting are provided.

In its announcement, the Forest Service said that the principle issues will be recreation, ranching, oil and gas development, logging, forest thinning and off-road vehicle use. The meetings will be from 5:30 to 9:00 p.m., in the following locations:

January 17 - Leadville, National Mining Hall of Fame and Museum, 120 West 9th Street

January 18 - Salida, Chaffee County Fairgrounds, 10165 County Road 120

January 30 - Denver, Clements Community Center, 480 S. Allison Parkway

January 31 - Colorado Springs, La Foret Conference Center, 6145 Shoup Road

February 14 -Westcliffe, Ranchera's Roost Cafe & Bowling Alley, 25 Main Street

February 15 - Pueblo, El Pueblo Museum, 302 N. Santa Fe Avenue

February 21 - Fairplay, Fairplay Fairbarn, 880 Bogue Street
