Objection period set for Sherwin-Scenic Loop Project


The Inyo National Forest, Mammoth Ranger District, has prepared an Environmental Assessment (EA) for the Sherwin-Scenic Loop Hazardous Fuels Reduction Project. This project proposes to conduct fuels treatments by mowing brush and thinning trees on approximately 1,100 acres managed by the Inyo National Forest around Sherwin Creek, Mammoth Creek, and Mammoth Scenic Loop areas, in and around the town of Mammoth Lakes.

The proposed project is subject to a 30-day objection process. Objections will only be accepted from those who have previously submitted written comments specific to the project during scoping or other opportunity for public comment. Objections will only be accepted for 30 calendar days following publication of the legal notice in the Inyo Register, which is expected on Tuesday, Feb. 5.
