Park Commissioners Rethink Study Revocation
Cody, WY – Park County Commissioners are reevaluating their chances of getting the McCullough Peaks Wilderness Study Area revoked. Only Congress can create or revoke wilderness study areas. And Commissioner Marie Fontaine says revoking the wilderness study area is a losing proposition right now considering the current makeup of Congress. The McCullough Peaks Wilderness STudy area covers about eight thousand acres southwest of Powell. If ever designated by Congress as an officials wilderness area, it would be subject to tighter regulation. That would mean no morotized vehicles. An Environmental Assessment for the area is expected in January.
