Michigan national forest considering banning alcohol on wild and scenic rivers
This is probably just another run-of-the-mill people management issue that taxes the limited recreation management resources of the Forest Service; here’s what happens when natural places get so popular they attract people who are not there to enjoy the nature part. The ban would be about “safety and environmental issues on our National Wild and Scenic Rivers,” and maybe there are some wild and scenic rivers act requirements at the bottom of this (the forest supervisor spent some time at OGC). (But it’s mostly interesting to me because I’ve been on these rivers, long ago).
