Price Resource Management Plan

"The folks in the Price office considered six alternative management plans. They chose the one that would have the second-largest overall impact in terms of environmental degradation. Even maintaining the status quo would have less. Viewed in that light, it is clear that this plan would move these lands toward exploitation rather than preservation."
