Protect backcountry national forests
The Roadless Rule is a tool that protects many of our most valued backcountry recreation areas across the country. Roadless forests are also the source of clean air, clean water, and habitat. Right now, roadless forests are facing a significant threat. The state of Alaska and the Forest Service in Alaska are currently considering how to eliminate protections on Alaska’s National Forests so they can open them up to logging and other development. Recreation and tourism are a major part of the economy in Alaska, and unnecessary development could have a huge impact.
The Forest Service is taking public comments on a plan to reduce roadless protections in Alaska, a decision that has implications for National Forests across the country that are protected by the Roadless Rule. We need your help.
