Frank Church River of No Return Wilderness, Idaho.
While floating Idaho's Main Salmon River I discovered that motorized vehicles were violating the Frank Church River of No return Wilderness and the Salmon River Wild River Corridor by historic mining roads, trails and a pack bridge clearly closed to motor vehicles. Why has this been allowed? Check out the response to our questions from Cheryl Probert, Forest Supervisor of the Nez Perce-Clearwater National Forest.
Cheryl Probert, the Nez Perce-Clearwater Forest Supervisor, finally responded to our initial request for information about this matter with a cryptic half-page letter after nearly four months and two written requests. Our followup letter dated 3/12/17, and a second followup letter dated 7/5/17, have received no response.
Receiving an answer to our inquiry about this matter is a Wilderness Report top priority. Shortly, a letter will be sent to the Regional Forester requesting assistance. Members are asked to also send a note of concern about the failure the Nez Perce-Clearwater Forest Supervisor to respond to a public request for information.
