Providing Access for Hunters, Anglers and Wildlife Watchers

Posted Wednesday May 31, 2017 by wf_admin

Public access to the Clearwater National Forest in Idaho improved thanks to a $10,000 matching grant from Wildlife Forever. More than 15 miles of right-of-way easements were negotiated and the access routes marked. Users of the trails include hunters, anglers, hikers, wildlife watchers and others. Many of the trails offer chances to view elk, moose, white-tailed and mule deer, ruffed and spruce grouse, bears cougars, gray wolves and numerous species of songbirds. The trails open more than 23,000 acres to the public. An estimated 4,800 users frequent the area for outdoor recreation. With public access for hunters and others dwindling, Wildlife Forever is dedicated to expanding outdoor recreation and wildlife education opportunities through increased public access. Your support is making that possible.
