Increased visitation presents challenges for land managers
August 13, 2020
Despite the pandemic, the Seeley Lake and Swan Lake Ranger Districts are seeing very high visitor use on roads, trails, dispersed camping sites and in the developed campgrounds. Both Districts are actively working to increase their presence to manage public safety, protect resources, work to benefit visitor experiences and accommodate the increased use they have been seeing this year.
"I think it is really cool that the public is rediscovering their public lands. That is a very positive thing in my mind," said Seeley Lake District Ranger Quinn Carver. "That comes with some down sides."
