Forest Service Considering Sale of Wetlands in Colorado

Posted by nationalforestlawblog on February 8, 2011 at 10:19 AM

The Glenwood Springs Post Independent reports that the Forest Service is considering selling 60 acres along the Roaring Fork River to raise money for its visitor center in Aspen.  The land is primarily swampy and regulations prohibit the land from being sold for development, so the sale probably won't raise enviromentalists blood pressure too much.  However, the question should be put to the Forest Service as to where all its stimulus money went that it now has to sell land to fund its visitor center.  If you will recall, this is the same agency that remodeled a visitor center with all new, very expensive windows (I think near Mt. St. Helens) that was not and will not be used.
