    Description

    The Bob Marshall Wilderness Complex Recreation Management Direction was approved in April 1987. Monitoring of recreational use has focused on encounters with other parties, the number of campsites impacted, and number of aircraft landings at Schafer Meadows airstrip. The available monitoring information indicates standards are being met for encountering other parties, but that the number of impacted sites, and aircraft landings during some periods, exceeded limits. The primary management tool to reduce recreational use impacts is through encouraging Leave No Trace camping practices. Resolving recreational use allocation and Wilderness resource issues, and improving monitoring information, are important steps in achieving goals and objectives of the Limits of Acceptable Change Plan.
