The Pasadena Star-News reports that the Forest Service has been ordered to start a public input process to reconsider land use in the Angeles National Forest by rezoning hundreds of thousands of acres to "recommended wilderness" areas where some currently allowed activities could be restricted.
The process could "prohibit off-road recreation, decommission unused trails and roads, and help restore habitat for such endangered or threatened species as steelhead trout, the California condor and the Arroyo toad," according to the Star-News report.
The change is the result of a lawsuit filed by a group called The Wilderness Society, the newspaper reports.
The closest meeting to Montrose-La Crescenta for public input is at the Forest Service headquarters at 701 N. Santa Anita Ave., Arcadia on May 30 from 4 to 7 p.m.
Further details about the potential changes can be read on the Forest Service website or a letter attached right to the article.
