Forest ORV Plans Heating Up in the Southwest
.— The Forest Service is releasing plans for managing off-road vehicles across Arizona and New Mexico, which, if done right, would protect millions of acres of land after decades of mismanagement. But if they fail to focus on protecting wildlife habitat and watersheds from fragmentation and erosion, the long-overdue plans could be profoundly damaging, leaving thousands of miles of unneeded roads on the ground and wreaking havoc on forest ecosystems. According to Cyndi Tuell, Southwest conservation advocate at the Center for Biological Diversity in Tucson, Arizona, these plans could provide the protection for wildlife ... market trends, news research and surveys resources

We did go to the park with our kids yesterday to go "pond skimming," and my husband was ducking under bushes to try to help one of the kids catch a snake. Could something ...
