Wilderness Management Planning - A Story Map
Track: Parks, Natural Reserves, Fisheries, and Wildlife Management
Authors: David Stockdale, Jeremy Hobson
In 2015, 3 new wilderness areas were designated in central Idaho. Federal agencies are required to develop wilderness management plans (WMP). A WMP guides the preservation, management, and use of the wilderness. A story map journal of the WMP was developed that features maps, visualizations of proposed management actions, photographs, and links to other relevant material. The story map reflects the Sawtooth NF's commitment to increasing use of web-based technology to interact with the public.
