January board USFS releases new Land Management Plan for Custer Gallatin National Forest after 44 years

The U.S. Forest Service (USFS) released a 242 page report on Friday, Jan. 28, detailing the future of the Custer Gallatin National Forest unit. The unit, which was formed in 2014 when the Gallatin National Forest and Custer National Forest joined together, spans 3 million acres across the entire state of Montana and into South Dakota.

For the love of the forest

If you’re grateful for the beauty and solitude easily found in the Beaverhead-Deerlodge National Forest, thank the U.S. Forest Service (USFS) and the agency’s summer volunteers. That the forest is remote yet easily reachable is due to carefully maintained roads and readable signs.
