LONGMONT, Colo. (AP) The U.S. Forest Service has scheduled two public meetings in Nederland and Lyons to discuss ongoing flood recovery efforts on National Forest System land.

The Longmont Times-Call reports one meeting will be held from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. on April 22 at the Nederland Community Center, and the other will be held from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. on April 30 at Rogers Hall in Lyons.

Elsha Kirby, a spokeswoman for the Boulder Ranger District of the Arapahoe and Roosevelt National Forests, says the forest landscape has changed dramatically since September's floods. She says the meetings will address land access, natural resources recovery and what recreation areas are affected.

The floods in northern and eastern Colorado killed nine people and damaged or destroyed nearly 2,000 homes.
