A trio of meetings are scheduled to get public input on the Upper Monument Creek Landscape Restoration project that aims to provide more support to the landscape's wildlife, vegetation, forest structure and watersheds.

The Pike National Forest, Pikes Peak Ranger District will host public meetings on Nov. 30 at Library 21c, 1175 Chapel Hills Drive, Colorado Springs and on Dec. 1 at the Monument Fire Center classroom off Mount Herman Rd. in Monument. An online meeting will be held Nov. 29. For an invite, email psicc_umc@fs.fed.us.

All meetings are scheduled from 5:30 p.m.-6:30 p.m.

The Forest Service has identified three needs to accomplish the project's purpose, including actively managing the landscape to increase the resiliency of the forest, addressing reduced forest health, watersheds, wildlife habitats and addressing the high risk of catastrophic wildfires.

The public can make comments about the project at the public open houses or online at www.fs.usda.gov/project/?project=44012.
