Little Jacks Creek Wilderness by Bob WickWilderness Watch and Western Watersheds Project joined forces in challenging grazing permit renewal decisions that allow a significant increase in livestock grazing, along with 30 miles of new fencing, 12 new water troughs, and 9.6 miles of water pipelines, in the Owyhee Canyonlands and Little Jacks Creek Wilderness in Idaho. The decisions also authorize varying levels of motorized access and equipment within the Wilderness to facilitate these “range improvement” projects and other grazing-related activities. This latest challenge is part of our ongoing effort to keep development and motorized use out of the Owyhee Canyonlands Wildernesses and to confront the harm that livestock grazing inflicts on this unique landscape. Unfortunately, our appeal was denied and we're considering our next step.
