The boundary areas for the "wilderness" designation are being worked on by various interest groups, such as the Sierra Club. I don't know where the boundary lines would be. I believe that to receive the designation of "wilderness" you have to have a recommendation by the local congressman, which would be Jerry Lewis. When I talked to Joyce Burk, she said that Congressman Lewis was not in favor of wildernesses and she did not think that he would recommend it.

However, there are agreements and compromises being made between the special interests groups. Joyce Burk and the BLM had to reach some agreement concerning Deep Creek when I received that email from Joyce Burk. Her attitude changed 360 degrees. I had heard years ago that Joyce Burk was extremely interested in Deep Creek and planned to make it a "wilderness".

We do not know the boundaries being discussed right now. But wherever the boundary is that is where we will be walking from. This is if this does become a reality.

I will find out though. I know someone at the Sierra Club who could probably get me some information and I will request the new management plan updates and meeting dates.
