Groups seek enhanced recreation in U.S. Forest Service rules

The U.S. Forest Service is developing a replacement planning rule to guide the development of forest plans, which determine recreational access and activities on 190 million acres of land and water, according to the National Marine Manufacturers Association.

The NMMA and more than 70 organizations in the Coalition for Recreation in the National Forests are calling upon the agency to include direction to national forests that is more active in managing recreation and seeks out partners able to assist in managing and enhancing recreation.
