JJohn Stewart, member of the Board of Directors for BlueRibbon Coalition, Natural Resources Consultant for California Association of 4 Wheel Drive Clubs, Managing Editor for the MUIRNet-News family of websites stated, “It is an honor to have an article selected for publication in a law book. I believe this represents the beginning of an era of change in litigation and management.”
Recreation has surged on public lands managed by various federal agencies since the post-World War II era began. Changes to management policies have not kept up with the surge in demand for recreation opportunity.
“...Change is needed. Recreation is growing, Options for recreational access to public lands are decreasing. Changes to laws governing wilderness and endangered species are needed; changes that support a balanced conservation goal. There are no quick and easy answers. It is going to take time, effort, and pain. It is about balance...”
That is the closing paragraph to the article titled “Conservation Triangle – Extraction, Preservation and Recreation” and published at http://www.4x4wire.com/thats-my-view/conservation-triangle-extraction-preservation-and-recreation
