CARBONDALE – The White River Forest Alliance, an organization opposing the Hidden Gems Wilderness Campaign, is hosting a forum on preserving Wilderness and proper recreational use of public lands.

The meeting will be at 7 p.m. Tuesday, Feb. 23, at Dos Gringos in Carbondale. The event is being billed as an environmental open forum called “wilderness Defined.”

“Input from all user groups is encouraged, including mountain bikers, hikers, snowmobilers, dirt bikers, ATV riders, hunters, fishermen, backcountry skiers, four-wheel-drivers, ranchers and land owners,” said a notice about the meeting. “Learn about working together as a community to preserve our wilderness. Discuss cross-stewardship, tolerance and protocols among user groups on our public lands.”

Anyone interested can check out more information online at or call organizer Jack Albright at 379-3244.
