QWR submitted the above letter on March 13, 2012 expressing our concerns about a new
318-page FS OHV Guidebook that adopted the Wildlands Center for the Prevention of Roads closure-oriented management prescriptions.
It appears the document was created in a vacuum without oversight from agency OHV experts at the Regional and Washington Office levels. QWR has asked the agency to address our concerns.
QWR believes the agency should quickly acknowledge this mistake and take steps to assure the public it will not happen again.
