I strongly oppose the draft Wild Olympics proposal. It is not balanced and will memorialize the poor management our National Forests have experienced for the last twenty years. I do not support any additional acreage being added to the Olympic National Park, the Wilderness additions as proposed are mostly inappropriate and not characteristic of wilderness. I ask that destruction of public access be stopped and that restoration of public access be restored at the forest road 2180 in the Sam’s River. I respectfully ask that our Congressional delegation not adopt this proposal and seek a broader conversation with local communities that results in a balance of conservation, recreation and harvest management of these resources that provides economic stability and family wage jobs.
