Wilderness in the North Fork

Wilderness was first proposed for the Whitefish Range in 1925 and people have been trying to make that happen ever since.  Although the North Fork is one of the most remote places in the lower 48 states, there is still not one acre of designated wilderness here.  Much of the Forest Service land in the northern part of the Whitefish Range is wild and roadless and has been managed for grizzly bears for decades.  This land should be designated as wilderness and preserved for future generations.  Frank Vitale, a long-time North Fork landowner and wilderness advocate, read some original writing at a meeting this week about a proposed wilderness area in the North Fork.  You can download this writing from here.
