When we discuss Huckleberry during News and Updates at next week's meeting, we will be joined by Adam Rissen from WildEarth Guardians who will talk about his organization's perspective in regard to its objection. We should also take a bit of time to talk about the upcoming FACA Committee meeting and the possibility for someone from PFC and BFC to give brief testimony in regard to the West Central Idaho Initiative proposal.
John Robison posted [this memo regarding the Huckleberry objection resolution process](http://le.sitekreator.com/Tools/file_direct_link.html?id=ODc4MzY0LDEwMzIxODQ0Nw), including ICL recommendations on how to proceed.
John has provided an excellent summary of the situation and I look forward to talking to Adam about this. I think that we (many PFC members) hoped that the selected alternative would improve WCC to “functioning at risk in at least the watersheds containing listed fish. I think we should continue to look for opportunities to make this happen. I know that additional road decommissioning is a sensitive issue within our coalition, but perhaps there are other road improvements that can be made that would provide equal benefits to move these watersheds to a functioning condition. As several have previously noted, while miles/sq mi is one metric for judging condition, it’s not necessarily the most appropriate or best in every watershed. On-the-ground conditions could show other ways to improve WCC in these watersheds.
