Overview/Background

History

In October 1964 the Regional Forester designated this area as a Scenic Area so that it could be managed for its special values for public study, use, and enjoyment. In May 1981 the Gaudineer Scenic Area was designated a Registered Natural Landmark for its exceptional value as an illustration of the Nation's natural heritage and its contribution to a better understanding of man's environment. In May 1983 the Scenic Area was registered by the Society of American Foresters as an outstanding example of a vegetative community in a near natural condition dedicated for scientific and educational purposes.
