Interview: TLMP amendment a "missed opportunity"

SITKA, ALASKA This January the Forest Service released the first major revision of the Tongass Land Management Plan in a decade. The conservation community is disappointed in the amended plan, and believes the Forest Service missed a chance to reassess its management strategy in a new economy where timber plays a far smaller role than in the past. Sitka Conservation Society director Andrew Thoms speaks with KCAWs Robert Woolsey (for the Forest Service perspective, see the interview with forest supervisor Forrest Cole).
