The U.S. Forest Service will host meetings this week in Dahlonega, Clayton, and Chatsworth concerning its Foothills Landscape Project.

The Foothills Landscape Project is designed to maintain and improve watershed and ecological conditions on 157,625 acres that stretch across the Chattahoochee National Forest. The project began in 2016 with collaboration among partners and stakeholders whose investments "have shaped this shared vision to address conservation challenges."

The Foothills Landscape includes portions of Dawson, Fannin, Gilmer, Habersham, Lumpkin, Murray, Rabun, and White counties.

The meetings will each begin at 6:00 p.m. as follows:
