Citizen-Led Upper Lochsa Land Exchange Public Meeting


On Monday, December 12, at 7 pm MST, representatives of the National Association of Forest Service Retirees (NAFSR) and Friends of the Palouse Ranger District (FPRD) are sponsoring and hosting an educational meeting in the Multipurpose Room of the Riggins High School in Riggins, Idaho.  NAFSR is a national organization that opposes the Upper Lochsa Land Exchange, while FPRD is a local group that has actively challenged the land swap since 2009.  These stalwart guardians of our public lands will provide relevant information and straight answers to all of your questions about this egregious federal acquiescence to land speculator greed.  They will share the inaccuracies and omissions of narratives forwarded by the Forest Service and exchange proponents, the administrative processes and evolution of the trade proposal, and the actions you can engage to oppose the exchange.  Please also visit Stop the Swap! for further insights.
