Notice of Public Hearing on Proposed Amendment

Amendment of ARM 36.11.432 and ARM 36.11.470 (Grizzly bear conservation measures on Stillwater & Coal Creek State Forests))

The Montana Department of Natural Resources and Conservation (DNRC), Trust Land Management Division, Forest Management Bureau is beginning an Environmental Assessment for the proposed amendment of ARM 36.11.432 and ARM 36.11.470. The proposed amendment would establish security zones to minimize adverse impacts on grizzly bears when conducting forest management activities on the Stillwater and Coal Creek State Forests. These rules replace commitments GB-ST2, GB-ST3, and GBST5 (3.) and (4.) in the DNRC Habitat Conservation Plan (HCP). The amendment of ARM 36.11.432 and ARM 36.11.470 is reasonably necessary as a requirement of a settlement agreement approved October 9, 2015, in U.S. District Court, Friends of the Wild Swan et al. v. S.M.R. Jewell, et al., Case No. CV-13-61-M-DWM. The judge approved a settlement agreement negotiated between the DNRC and the plaintiffs concerning the DNRC HCP.
