Description

Washington Monthly investigates "how the recreation industry has become the newest threat to our public lands." The story reveals that "recreation fees create incentive for the agency [the Forest Service] to make decisions based not on what is good for the land, but on what will increase the number of visitors." The author explores how skiing industry has stimulated "widespread real-estate development near public lands," thus posing multiple hazards to the wildlife.
