Collaborative Area Management Plan

Friends 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.
