Cody, Wyo. March 10, 2021— The Clarks Fork, Greybull, and Wapiti Ranger Districts of the Shoshone National Forest will be holding a community meeting at the Meeteetse Fire Hall on Tuesday, March 16th from 5:00 p.m. to 6:30 p.m.

The focus of this meeting will be to inform the community of Meeteetse regarding the prescribed fire project west of town. During the meeting, staff from the Shoshone National Forest will give a short presentation describing the areas within the project and the benefits associated with this prescribed fire project to include those for rangeland and wildlife. Representatives from Bureau of Land Management and Wyoming State Forestry will also be on hand to discuss ongoing projects in the area.

District Ranger Casey McQuiston said, “We want to take the opportunity to meet with Meeteetse community members and anyone else interested in prescribe fire in the area to go over our plans and provide a forum to ask questions.”

Due to space availability and the request to maintain social distancing, the Shoshone National Forest asks that only individuals impacted by this prescribed fire project attend in person. The meeting will be streamed live on the Shoshone National Forest Facebook page at https://www.facebook.com/ShoshoneNF.
