Apostle Islands- National Wilderness Preservation

November 30, 2001


Are you aware of the wilderness suitability study for Apostle Islands National Lakeshore? The National Park Service is evaluating the park for possible inclusion in the National Wilderness Preservation System.


They are seeking public input to direct their decision. The majority of comments they have received to date are opposed to wilderness designation. Those opposed feel it will restrict the development of motorized access to the islands.


Those in favor of wilderness protection status for the park either don't exist, or are not commenting.


The deadline for comments is January 15, 2002. Please write to voice your comments, ideas and concerns.

Mail to: Superintendent, Apostle Islands National Lakeshore Route 1 Box 4 Bayfield, WI 54814
