The Friday Feature 04.09.2021


We know how busy you are and that sometimes The Friday Feature gets buried in the long list of emails you haven't had time to read, so we have added a feature to help make it easier to read them. In addition to the weekly email you will receive, you can now find links to the last few weeks of The Friday Feature on the Resources page.  


You can find all of the details for the current seminars being offered below and on the calendar.

U.S. Senators Jim Risch (R-Idaho) and Angus King (I-Maine) introduced the bipartisan Modernizing Access to Our Public Land (MAPLand) ActThe MAPLand Act would digitize recreational access information and make those resources available to the public. The legislation would also provide federal land management agencies with funding and guidance to create comprehensive databases of available map-based agency records related to recreational access and use.

These records include information regarding legal easements and rights-of-way across private land, year-round or seasonal closures of roads and trails, as well as restrictions on vehicle-type, boundaries of areas where special rules or prohibitions apply to hunting and shooting, and areas of public waters that are closed to watercraft or have horsepower restrictions. Click Here to read the bill.
