as Sections 1, 0, and 00.

On March 14, 2001 The Tallulah Ranger District issued a public memo to Interested Person regarding
the future management of the "Nicholson Tract". The "Nicholas Tract" is the
newly acquired land on the West Fork that was at the center of the West Fork access controversy
over the last few years.
One of the uses being considered for the Nicholson Tract is a horse camp. This is a potentially
serious impact to the river water quality. If you are interested in knowing more about the propose
management ideas please contact David Jensen, District Ranger, Tallulah Ranger District, 809
