Outdoors recreationists have a chance to weigh in on how the Oregon Badlands wilderness could be managed. Lisa Clark with the Bureau of Land Management says the popular wilderness site draws a lot of locals and visitors to the beauty of the area, but keeping it in the best shape; they need a plan. "Well, with the designation of a Wilderness, we've removed the option of allowing motorized use out there, so that's an option that's off the table. However, we are looking at different ways that people can hike, ride horses, where should we be doing restoration to improve the wilderness character, where should those trails or trailheads be? So we need more or less? So that's the kind of information that we're looking for from people." Clark says there will still be access off of Highway 20, but only to a point. You will need to travel on foot or horseback through most of the area. The "public scoping" meeting is March first at the Riverbend Community Room at the Bend Parks and Rec office, from 6-30 to 8 p.m.
