Short Description of Activity

20 minute phone call with Henry Ring, senior staff of Senator Jon Tester, advising that support for collaboratives on Custer Gallatin Forest lands were exclusive of many voices, especially grassroots groups, and should not be supported, due to the poor recommendations for Wilderness (dropping WSA protection from half of acreage, etc.)

Reflection/Evaluation

I was satisfied that I achieved the goal of informing the staff person that a strong Wilderness bill is in preparation for the subject lands. We will follow up with legislation we have prepared for the Northern Greater Yellowstone Ecosystem.
