- ...Join the Uintas Issues Forum! (Again, see the Feb.'99 "Lynx.") While this is an informal group with no decision- making capabilities, it provides a unique forum to engage in a discussion of Uintas issues. Since fall, it has met every other month in Kamas but will now meet on March 27 and April 24 at the Kamas City Hall, 10AM-2PM. March's focus will be forest plan issue identification; in April the focus will be on establishing crucial ecological and social concepts of <desired future direction> for the Uintas based on the issues identified this month. No matter how you get involved, please do so. Remember the Uintas harbor the largest designated wilderness in Utah, it is in the top 20 largest wildernesses in the lower48, and another 200,000+ acres of roadless lands surround the wilderness. The Uintas are the last hope and home for wolverine, lynx, pine marten, grizzly bear, wolf. The combination of intact and large forests, high elevation meadow complexes and hundreds of rich riparian areas make this place the most unique forested area in Utah!
