Olympic National Park holds meetings on wilderness plans

March 18th, 2014 - 5:41am

(Port Angeles) Olympic National Park holds the first of six public meetings tonight on possible big changes to use of the park's wilderness areas.

The park has released four alternatives for dealing with the wilderness areas. They range from doing nothing to a full implementation of the federal Wilderness Act that could lead to elimination of man-made structures and limits on access.

The alternatives were developed after a series of meetings last year that sought comments on what the park wilderness experience should be.

Tonight's meeting runs from 5-7 at the Port Angeles library. The park is taking comments on the proposed alternatives through May 17th and will be out with a draft environmental impact statement on a wilderness plan by the end of the year.
