White Mountain National Forest Updates

Just in case you didn't get this e-mail:


Dear Interested Citizen:
The recent revision of the White Mountain National Forest’s Land and
Resource Management Plan — our Forest Plan — reinforced the fact that we
have many attentive and involved citizens who care about the uses and
activities occurring on this public land. Public participation was an
integral part of the Forest Plan revision, and our hope is that we can
continue to count on thoughtful public involvement as we now plan
individual projects around the Forest.

We are updating our mailing list of people and organizations who are
interested in our project proposals.

You have the option of receiving email notification and accessing documents
on the web, or receiving hardcopy documents and notices in the U.S. Mail.
We encourage you to opt for the electronic documents, if at all possible,
and help us save resources and many thousands of dollars in printing and
mailing costs each year. Our website has all our current and archived
project planning documents, and I invite you to visit < ... /projects/> to view

By choosing email notification, you will have the earliest access to
project documents, as web postings and email notices will occur prior to
hardcopy mailings. To remain on our email notification list, please use the
web form at <>.
If you wish hard copy notification instead, you may download the request
form from that site. Please note that you must return the form by May 15,
2006 to remain on our contact list.

Please feel free to contact Pat Nasta at (603) 466-2713 ext. 222, or
<>, with any questions.

Thank you for your interest in the White Mountain National Forest. I look
forward to your participation as we enter this new era of project planning.

(Signed) Thomas G. Wagner

Thats not totally true Steve. You just need to be part of the 10 year forest plan.

We were, from the very first outreach meeting in the Tip O'Neil Building in Boston to the last meeting in Plymouth where we were told there would be no summer motorized use.

well, it's done.

Tens of thousands of acres in White Mountains to be preserved

2 hours, 5 minutes ago

Washington, D.C. – A bill that will protect two large parcels of land in New Hampshire's White Mountains won final congressional approval today.

The New England Wilderness Act will create a 23,700-acre wilderness area in the Wild River Valley around Gorham and expand an existing wilderness areas in the Sandwich Range by 10,800 acres.

Outgoing U.S. Reps. Charles Bass and Jeb Bradley praised the collaborative effort behind today's House passage of the bill.

Bass in a statement thanked legislators and environmental groups involved with the bill for “working together to craft this recommended addition to the Granite State’s crown jewel of the outdoors.”

His colleague Bradley said on the floor of the House the compromise reached between the New Hampshire delegation and Independent Vermont Rep. Bernie Sanders was “in true New England fashion” and that the passage of the bill “makes sense for New Hampshire.”

Bradley said in a statement that he had hiked many of the areas that will be protected under the bill and knows “that they are truly deserving of this wilderness designation.”

He joked on the floor that he will now have more time to explore the White Mountain National Forest more thoroughly.

Bass said on the floor the implication of the bill “will be felt forever,” long after he leaves office in January, and said that it was the “most important bill I’ve ever had.”

The bill had been tied up during the regular congressional session in political bickering between Vermont's congressional delegation and Gov. Jim Douglas, who wanted more land protected. After Douglas helped to derail the legislation by complaining to Republican House chairmen, it was revised to boost the wilderness designation by 42,000 acres.

The bill had appeared on the House calendar on Monday as lawmakers returned to Washington, but it was removed because of another complaint.<<p>

I just read in one of the mags that California and Idaho are securing new wilderness areas but they made a point to section off areas for off-road use by four-wheel drive vehicles. If only we could get our forests to do the same. :(
