Ward Creek Plans

The Forest Service should not allow commercial-use permits of this free public recreation area. Twenty tourists in a group would definitely clog the trail. When people pay money to be somewhere, they have a sense that they own the place.

Furthermore, the Forest Service should not be competing with private enterprise. Consider the Rainforest Sanctuary, which conducts tours on their own land. It is unfair to compete with them.

Keep the public lands open to the public. Tourists are welcome. Commerce is not.
