Natural Resource Committee Meeting The Payette National Forest makes up nearly two-thirds of Adams County. How will changes in forest management alter the look of our local landscape? That will be the topic of the monthly meeting of the Adams County Natural Resource Committee, and you're invited to bring your own questions. The NRC meets Monday, February 27th at 7:00 p.m. at the Adams County courthouse. Bob Giles from the Payette National Forest Supervisor's Office will be on hand to talk about the change in USFS policy toward "Restoration Forest Management." Giles will explain how that may be imple- mented on the Council and New Meadows Ranger Districts. Will it mean more jobs in the woods and at the mill? How will it affect property owners in the wildland urban interface (WUI)? How might it impact big game herds, water quality, fish habitat, grazing permittees, roads and recreationists? Will you have more or less opportunity to gather firewood? This meeting is open to all, so bring your neighbors and your ques- tions. For more information, call NRC chairman Ron Hamilton at 257-3888.
