Question No. 3 — For Sale: Idaho Forest

Issue: For sale: 26,000 Idaho acres: Details of Forest Service plan raise concerns in region/James Hagengruber, Spokesman-Review

Additional Info: Included in the sale are prime recreation sites near Coeur d’Alene, including the entire English Point trail network and Mokins Bay campground along Hayden Lake. The proposal also includes 160 mountainous acres near the St. Joe River once used by Indian tribes for sacred vision quests.

DFO: Absolute insanity.

Question: What’s your reaction to news that the Bush administration wants to sell prime pieces of forest to the highest bidders?
