New:  on February 15, 2015, new documents have been added to this webpage.  The JMJP Plan, a supplemental information sheet, and the Interested Party Letter are located under the Documents folder located on the left.  This plan is an interagency (BLM & USFS) wilderness management plan for the Jim McClure-Jerry Peak Wilderness.  




 
 
 
 
 The BLM Challis Field Office and the Salmon-Challis National Forest have jointly prepared a wilderness management plan for the Jim McClure-Jerry Peak Wilderness (116,898 acres). This wilderness was designated by President Obama under the Sawtooth National Recreation Area and Jerry Peak Wilderness Additions Act (August 7, 2015). The BLM manages about 22,000 acres of the wilderness and the USFS manages the remaining acres.

The purpose of a wilderness management plan is to provide management direction for the preservation of wilderness character by identifying the conditions and opportunities that will be managed for within wilderness, creating specific guidelines for managing wilderness resources and activities. The plan will identify actions that will be implemented upon adoption of the plan, and those that may be implemented in the future if changes in resource conditions occur.
