Area Management Plan
of Redington Pass continues to focus on the Collaborative Area
Management Plan process for Redington Pass. Four working groups
are focusing on four issue areas: Recreational Target Shooting,
Recreational Access, Highly used Areas, and Conflicts among Users.
These working groups held four rounds of meetings between February
and May as well as a full group field trip in April. An integration
group made up of representatives from each issue working group
has also met four times to review the working groups’ progress
and identify any overarching concerns or patterns that are emerging.
Research will continue over the summer and the working groups
will reconvene this fall to pick up where they left off in May.

new plant growth to benefit local wildlife and livestock. Details.
