Alaska Roadless Rule - Paddlers

As part of the Outdoor Alliance, our organizations’ collective membership recreates on landscapes protected under the Roadless Rule in Alaska and across the country. We believe it essential that the Roadless Rule’s benefits for outdoor recreation—including the protection of wild landscapes, wildlife, and air and water quality—be maintained or expanded as the Forest Service considers whether to tailor the Roadless Rule for the particular needs of National Forests in Alaska. While our experience supports the continued application of the 2001 Roadless Rule through the no-action alternative, we see precedent in the Colorado Roadless Rule for the development of a state-specific rule that responds to the individual circumstances of that state, while nevertheless, in many respects, exceeding the conservation standards set by the national rule. We strongly oppose theconsideration of an alternative to exempt the Tongass National Forest from the rule in its entirety.
