One of our main objectives is to protect High Knob by obtaining congressional designated as a National Recreation Area. High Knob’s forests and watersheds are a source of drinking water, prevent flooding, and to give our community a place for safe and enriching recreation.
Our campaign to defend High Knob is built around a forest watch program which holds the Forest Service accountable for their management decisions in our National Forest. You can read our statement on the current proposed Nettle Patch forest management proposal here, as well as our submitted comments here. We are also working to get the 18.7 mile Chief Benge Scout Trail designated as a National Recreation Trail.
