The National Forest Service wants to know which roads are worth keeping in the Mount Baker-Snoqualmie National Forest.
Spokesperson Renee Bodine says there are 2,500 miles of roads and they can only afford to maintain about a quarter of them.
They are considering closing many roads that are washing out into streams and rivers, causing concern for fish and wildlife habitat.
A Public meeting will be held in Sedro Woolley at the Mount Baker District Office on July 9 and another at the Bellingham Public Library on September 10.
