The purpose of a town hall meeting is for gatherers and the local community to talk, ask/answer questions, and address concerns. This is an open meeting. We strongly encourage all individuals in the
communities surrounding the gathering to come meet with us and ask what ever questions are on your mind. We strongly encourage gathering participants to attend the meeting. The best way to make sure we have a positive impact on the community is to meet the community face to face. Person to person communication is very effective. As always, no experience necessary. We welcome all media to attend the town hall meeting. Often times employees from the United States Forest Service attend these meetings as well.
