Forests of Discord
SAF has recently published a new booklet concerning controversies surrounding the management of public lands entitled Forests of Discord. ". . . the language that governs the public lands is sometimes contradictory, and clear direction about priorities is lacking. . . . Multiple use has become an engine of conflict that pits one interest group against another and denies land managers a clear mandate."

Friends of IMSAF
Intermountain SAF has established "IMSAF Friends" for non-members who wish to be involved in meetings and functions. Friends receive meeting announcements and are welcome to participate in Chapter functions. Friends do not receive SAF national publications, nor do they have voting or office-holding privileges, and there are no educational or professional requirements for SAF Friends (these items are associated with membership). Friends may learn of meeting schedules at no cost via the Intermountain SAF Web page or via email. To receive postal notification, Friends pay a nominal fee of $5/year, which is used to cover announcement and newsletter publication and postage. You may inquire with any of the SAF Officers if interested in becoming a SAF Friend.
