The U.S. Forest Service received 11 objections to a draft decision on a logging project in the Upper Fryingpan Valley. The objections come from home and property owners, environmental groups like Wilderness Workshop and the Roaring Fork Audubon Society, the Town of Basalt and a mill in Montrose that would receive some of the timber.

 

Environment reporter Elizabeth Stewart-Severy breaks down details about the objections and the process with Claire Woodcock.
