Description

From the text ... 'As forest plans are implemented and revised, attention is being given to the adequacy of direction provided for wilderness management....Performance elements for the regional forester, directors, and forest supervisors now include an element for wilderness program management. The standard for wilderness emphasizes (among other things) wilderness planning, improved integration of wilderness management with other Forest Service programs, and increasing attention to wilderness ecology. The opportunities discussed here offer an ideal path to demonstrate a commitment to meet the challenge of this new performance element.'
