The Hathaway Pines USFS office will be having an Open House to review the DRAFT proposed action of over-snow vehicle (OSV) use on March 13 from 1 to 5 pm in the Calaveras conference room. This is one step in many by the court mandated NEPA study after the USFS lost a lawsuit last year. NEPA study is expected to take 2 years starting this summer. If you are interested in riding snowmobiles in the Stanislaus this is a good time to review the draft to make sure the USFS has not missed any major areas or routes that have been used by snowmobiles. The address of the Calaveras Ranger station is 5519 Highway 4, Hathaway Pines, CA, 209-795-1381.
