Last Day To Comment On Limited Entry To Wilderness Areas

BEND, OR -- Today is the last day for public comment on proposals to limit entry to three popular wilderness areas and a proposal for permit fees for some trailheads. Kassidy Kern at the Deschutes Forest says the Mount Jefferson, Three Sisters and Mount Washington Wilderness Areas were created by Congress with the intent of keeping the areas primitive. Kern says the three wilderness areas are so popular now that the primitive wilderness experience is being degraded. To make a public comment on the proposals, log onto the Deschutes National Forest web page. On the front page click on the public comment section for special permit fees.
