The Forest Service is seeking comments on the Emerald Project Environmental Assessment for forest treatments proposed within the Emerald Creek drainage of the St. Maries River watershed in Latah and Shoshone Counties. 

The proposal includes timber harvest on approximately 2,508 acres, creating openings greater than 40 acres in size. Burning would be done on approximately 188 acres to reduce excess activity fuels.
