The National Park Service is accepting comments through June 6, 2019, on an Environmental Assessment for actions that would accommodate access to the private inholding on the Ruth Glacier that is the site for the Mountain House and new Sheldon Chalet. DCC is alarmed at both the preferred NPS response and precedent it sets for permitting new uses that would further (and unnecessarily) damage already-impaired wilderness values and natural soundscapes. The EA trips itself up with flaws in its acoustic analysis and explanation of access authorities. Read the entire PDF linked below. We encourage you to view and comment yourself by June 6 at:
