BLM Seeks Public Comment on Proposed Forest Treatments in South Dakota
The public is invited to submit comments and concerns to the Bureau of Land Management regarding proposed forest treatments in the Fort Meade Recreation Area.
The BLM South Dakota Field Office is preparing an environmental assessment for fuels reduction projects on the 6,693 acres of public lands within the Fort Meade Recreation Area. The proposed actions would reduce fire potential, enhance wildlife habitat, and improve recreational opportunities.

The comment period closes April 21.
