Recreation Resource Management Plan Development Underway
During the comprehensive management planning process for the Green River, FFSL determined that detailed recreational use data for sovereign land river segments was needed to fully understand and more effectively manage recreation in these areas.
FFSL is developing a resource recreation management plan (RMP) in response to this need. The RMP process will include two seasons of recreational use data collection, followed by analysis of the data. This large dataset, in addition to stakeholder input, will help FFSL better understand recreational uses and conflicts on sovereign land river segments. Based on the results of the input and data collection and analysis, FFSL will develop recreational use management objectives to address and reduce recreation conflicts, overcrowding, and other issues on sovereign land river segments.
