HELENA (AP) – The Western Governors’ Association plans five workshops to discuss forest and rangeland management practices and develop a compromise that could include more logging while also preserving forest and rangeland for tourism and recreation.

Montana Gov. Steve Bullock, chairman of the WGA, said Tuesday the first workshop will be held Sept. 20-21 in Missoula. The dates for workshops in Idaho and South Dakota, as well as the details on two others have not been announced.

Pyramid Mountain Lumber chief operating officer Loren Rose and Jim Stone, chairman of the Blackfoot Challenge conservation group, say people on all sides will need to collaborate to reach a compromise.

The WGA hopes to make a management recommendation to Congress.
