This week in the IP News 2 informative posts were published. Both contained one operative word, “currently” and on that basis were carefully worded.
First there was this one:
“Currently" there are no wildlife overpasses or anything associated with them to consider. But, if and when there are, then Idaho Fish & Game has a different answer for us.
Then there was also this article:
Ms. Davey we have one question:
Once wildlife overpasses are constructed how do you get back across The Targhee National Forest to achieve ‘connectivity’ to Yellowstone for multiple "species of greatest conservation need", defining what are the perimeters of their necessary protected habitats, or widths and lengths of their dispersal and migratory corridors, or define the restrictions and management requirements of all necessary ‘right-of-ways’….without having to re-visit the management plan of The Targhee National Forest?
FREMONT COUNTY COMMISSIONERS MEETING MINUTES February 26, 2018
District Ranger Elizabeth Davy RE: Ashton/Island Park Ranger District Updates
"She (Ms. Davy) is working with ITD on the Targhee Pass Project providing the environmental analysis for potential widening of the road and a potential wildlife crossing. "She is writing letters supporting various grants for ITD and other things."
Now we have the USFS working with ITD on the TPP…how many sate and federal agencies are involved and once again this is all news to Fremont County because we sure haven’t been invited to participate.
Making Sense of It All
This blog will help you make sense out of all the information on the website, how it affects IP, previous articles in the IP News, our history, and how efforts continue to put IP into various forms of conservation status.
