LEWISTON – Approximately 1,100 acres of forest restoration work will be completed on Craig Mountain Wildlife Management Area (WMA) following last year’s Snake River Complex fire. Forest restoration operations are currently underway and expected to last through this summer. Restoration work will include removal of dead and dying timber, re-planting of conifers, mastication, and thinning of some heavily stocked forest stands.
Craig Mountain visitors need to be on the lookout for increased log truck traffic and are asked to use caution when traveling to/from and around the WMA. Visitors are also advised to avoid areas where active logging is occurring.
Updates regarding additional fire restoration projects will be posted throughout the summer. Contact the Idaho Fish and Game office for more information at (208) 799-5010.
