Spokesman Review Editorial Applauds Our Progress

The Spokesman Review published an editorial on Saturday, May 16 that supports the continued work of the Friends and wishes Executive Director Phil Hough success in his trip to Washington D.C. this week. After reviewing the accomplishments of the Friends to date, the editorial staff included this gem:

“Scotchman Peaks has the virtues of holding little harvestable timber and no major mining claims. Wilderness designation would maximize its economic value, especially as a companion to the lakes and rivers in the area.”

We are very excited to have such support from the Spokesman Review as we move forward with our mission. Follow this link to read the article!
