Short Description of Activity
Members and co-leaders of the Broadband made substantive comments to the Custer Gallatin National Forest Plan Revision, and spent three days in Objection Resolution Meetings. We had press coverage as well.
The voices for strong wilderness protection dominated the objection meetings. About 45 significant statements were made on the record by Broadband members and allies from partner groups. Now we wait for the agency to announce a final decision in early 2021.
