Update on the Buck Project in Nantahala National Forest

Update on the Buck Project in Nantahala National Forest

The Forest Service has proposed a new plan, Alternative G, for the Buck Project in Nantahala National Forest. While we support some improvements in this plan – like some watershed repairs and controlled burns in the Buck Creek Serpentine Barrens – Alternative G still does tremendous harm to wild places, soil, water and old-growth forest, and goes against the wishes of hundreds of people that commented on the project.
