The Biden Administration has restored the basic environmental safeguards provided by the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA).

In this month’s policy update, we share news on the Idaho Panhandle National Forest, Bridger-Teton Forest Planning, and what we hope for from the President’s FY23 Budget.

The new plan applies a variety of management designations to thoughtfully manage the busiest parts of the forest, protect wilderness values, and benefit wildlife.

In this month’s policy update, we share news on Custer Gallatin Forest Plan and Flathead National Forest in Montana as well as updates from Inyo National Forest in California and Ambler Road in Alaska.

We strongly encourage all Teton winter backcountry travelers to help protect bighorn sheep by observing this winter’s voluntary closures.
