Targhee National Forest

  Recent road closures on Idaho's Targhee National Forest, intended to protect grizzly bear habitat, have stirred up massive local resistance. The forest is taking public comments through Feb.1 on a draft environmental impact statement for a plan to guide off-road vehicle use on forest roads and trails. The draft is available on the Web at www.fs.fed.us/tnf or from Alan Silker, Recreation Staff, Targhee National Forest, P.O. Box 208, St. Anthony, ID 83445 (208/624-3151).
