CNPSR rips latest Yellowstone NP winter-use proposal; says trust of snowmobile industry "has been broken"
A winter-use plan for Yellowstone National Park being promoted by park staff would "make a bad situation ... worse," according to the viewpoint of the Coalition of National Park Service Retirees.
“The NPS is proposing to make a bad situation at Yellowstone even worse," said Maureen Finnerty, chairperson of the Coalition's executive council. "Our members understand the real world consequences of motorized recreation in national parks. We are bewildered about this proposal after seven previous environmental reviews resulted in a major federal court decision ruling that NPS was not following its own legal and policy mandates in managing snowmobile use in the Park in the winter.”
