Roadless Area Conservation Featured on Nationally Syndicated TV Program
The 2001 Roadless Area Conservation Rule is a balanced policy that protects nearly 60 million acres of our nation's last wild forests. The rule was developed following years of scientific evidence, hundreds of public meetings across the country and 1.6 million public comments.
On December 20, 2007 the Bush administration announced its intention to remove these protections for more than six million acres of roadless areas in the national forests of Idaho, opening the door to its development by corporate special interests.
The Roadless Area Conservation Rule is the focus of a recent episode of the PBS television program NOW. Robert C. Vandermark, Manager of the Heritage Forest Campaign, is featured along with other representatives from the ranching, environmental, and mining communities.
