The Ozark St. Francis National Forests will host an educational field tour on Tuesday morning.
The tour will focus on Non-Native Invasive Plant Species (NNIPS) and Roadside Vegetation
Management Control Projects.
“Forest Service officials managing these projects are considering the use of herbicides to
control vegetation for maintenance in and around infrastructure improvements such as roads, trails,
guard rails and signs,” the news release states.
The tour will begin at 9 a.m. at the Lurton Community Center in Lurton and is expected to last around three hours.
“The public is encouraged to participate, especially since it is in conjunction with the 30-day comment period for the environmental assessment for this project,” said Mike Mulford, NEPA Coordinator for the Big Piney Ranger District. “The purpose of this tour is to clarify the proposal and address any questions and concerns that the public might have.”
