They are at it again. Please take a moment to glance over the following posts as the same issues exist regarding the Panhandle Forest.
- 10/20 Forests
- 10/6 Forests

- 11/1 Antiquities Act & Wilderness areas
In October, 2013 the U.S. Forest Service released the Panhandle National Forests' revised forest plan. And as usual environmental groups are complaining the wilderness recommendations leave out areas they think should be designated as wilderness areas. They filed an objection with the U.S. Forest Service. These groups include:
Moscow-based Friends of the Clearwater - partners with Earthjustice, UN NGO
Seeds of Peace, UN NGO, and others connected to the UN.
Sierra Club - UN NGO
Alliance for the Wild Rockies - board members include:
Stewart Brandborg - former executive director of The Wilderness Society, UN NGO
Clif Merritt - was a national leader in The Wilderness Society, UN NGO
Kootenai Environmental Alliance - staff & board
Mike Mihelich - board member for the Coeur d’Alene Audubon Society (formerly the president), UN NGO
Jenny Taylor - devotes time to Audobon Society, UN NGO
Ed Buchler - assists The Nature Conservancy, currently President of the Coeur d’Alene chapter of the National Audubon Society , both UN NGOs
As the reader can see there is a heavy influence of UN ideology behind these groups to restrict more use of land from Idahoans.
