Second North Idaho open house set on Scotchman Peaks wilderness proposal

UPDATED: Thu., July 6, 2017

From staff reports

The office of Idaho Sen. Jim Risch will hold an open house in Clark Fork on July 18 on a potential wilderness proposal for Scotchman Peaks. The session will run from 4 to 7 p.m. at Clark Fork High School. Risch staffers and officials from the U.S. Forest Service will be available to answer questions and gather input.

This is the second open house Risch has scheduled in North Idaho on the possible wilderness designation; the first, in Hope, drew nearly 300 people last month.
