Thursday, March 1st is the deadline for public comments on Mark Twain National Forest’s proposal to change the management for two Houston/Rolla/Cedar Creek Ranger District areas. The first proposal is to change the management emphasis for 389 acres known as “Epple tract” from general forest to semi-primitive, non-motorized area. This tract is located on Mark Twain National Forest’s Cedar Creek Ranger District. The second proposal is to change 1, 280 acres area known as “Western Star Flatwoods” to a special area other than wilderness. This change is proposed because Missouri’s Natural Areas Committee August 2011 designated Western Star Flatwoods a State Natural Area. Missouri's natural areas represent some of the best, and last examples of the state’s original natural landscape. This area is located on Mark Twain National Forest’s Rolla Ranger District. If you have questions or need more information about the proposals, call Laura Watts at 573-341-7471.
