The U.S. Fish and Wildlife service will be holding a public meeting in Fort Bragg Thursday about the future of its  northern spotted owl assistance program.

According to a release from the Department of Interior, the service plans to stop providing the program for timber operations. However, there will still be training and guidance to California Fish and Wildlife and Cal Fire operations.

The meeting, which will also include representatives from the CDFW and Calfire, will be held at 4 p.m. at the Redwood Coast Senior Center.

If you can’t attend that meeting, there is also another one at 4 p.m Saturday at the Humboldt County Agriculture Center in Eureka. For questions call 707 822-7201.
