Alliance Concerned About Wilderness Study Area

Alliance

The Jackson Hole Conservation Alliance is voicing concerns that a proposed fuels reduction project may disturb the wilderness character of a wilderness study area southwest of Teton Village.  In a statement released Wednesday, the Alliance says the project area includes designated roadless areas and the Palisades Wilderness Study Area, which Congress set aside “so as to maintain its presently existing wilderness character and potential for inclusion in the National Wilderness Preservation System.”  Alliance Wildlands Director Cory Hatch says instead, the focus should shift from thinning that area of the forest to helping homeowners on the wildland-urban interface to take steps to reduce the risk of wildfire damaging their homes.

    I promised you yesterday that I’d test a new product to see how well it works to keep you cool when the temperatures climb toward triple digits.   In case you missed it, yesterday I talked about seeing an ad on TV for a new type of training pants. The ad said, and I quote, […]
