Shoshone National Forest Management Plan Questioned

Mar 10, 2014

A new plan governing management and uses of the Shoshone National Forest is set to be finalized soon. But some groups, like the Greater Yellowstone Coalition, take issue with parts of the plan.

Of concern is an increase in motorized use in the Frank's Peak and Wood River roadless areas. Independent Contractor Charles Wolf Drimal says during the Forest's planning process, those areas were identified as having the highest wilderness potential.
