Re: “Into the Woods Today

It is contradictory to claim to represent interests in the wild back country in the Allegheny National Forest while expressing such unfettered support for the logging program which includes at least two active proposals to log in Allegheny National Forest roadless areas. The Millstone Creek Watershed has some of the highest concentration of roadless areas in the forest, yet is not a candidate for Wilderness. Does this mean that its wild back country is not worthy of protecting? The facts are tough to argue with. 2/3 of all Americans wish to see an end to commercial logging within the Allegheny National Forest. Local and regional residents overwhelming support Wilderness, recreation, and conservation over logging and oil&gas drilling uses. The Allegheny Defense Project continues to work hard for a complete version of the Allegheny National Forest that restores watershed protection as a primary purpose and which allows access for low impact recreation by Americans of all stripes. It is time to bring an end to the unfettered industrial use of the forest for private interests, and bring about a new era.
