A popular Indiana forest recreation area is at risk. The Indiana Department of Natural Resources has plans to log the backcountry area at Morgan-Monroe and Yellowwood State Forests. This 2,700 acre forest area was first set aside as a formal "backcountry" area in 1981. Songbirds including the endangered cerulean warbler, wild turkey, whitetail deer, barred owl, and many other species live in this area. It provides a unique recreational experience on Indiana's state forest lands, and is heavily used by hikers, hunters, backpackers and trail runners.
The DNR's backcountry logging plan will be reviewed by an Indiana legislative study committee on October 29th. Please attend the hearing if you can. If you cannot attend, contact State Rep. Bob Bischoff
( firstname.lastname@example.org )and Governor Daniels
and urge them to permanently protect this valuable backcountry forest recreation area.
