Open house set on wilderness impacts
Sunday, April 22, 2018
The U.S. Forest Service is considering changes to how it manages local wilderness areas in an effort to cope with heavy visitor impact. An open house is set for Tuesday, April 24, from 5:30 to 7 p.m. at Sisters High School, 1700 McKinney Butte Rd. to discuss a Draft Environmental Assessment of a project considering new management strategies for five wilderness areas in the Central Cascades region of Oregon.

Over the past year, resource specialists have been analyzing a range of management approaches for the Mt Jefferson, Mt Washington, Three Sisters, Diamond Peak and Waldo Lake Wilderness areas. The project, called the Central Cascades Wilderness Management Strategies Project, is in response to extreme growth in visitor use and the resulting impacts to the wilderness landscapes in some portions of these wilderness areas.

The open house was announced the day after the Nugget was published last week and thus too late to be announced in the print edition.

More information may be found at the Deschutes National Forest website. See link below.
