When questioned about specific plans that might be presented in September, Secretary Ed Shafer of the Department of Agriculture cited one that is already underway. "One of the recommendations is to put together a web page of all the different departments that shows available and accessible land--public land. "And there are other projects. One of the efforts is the coordination of state, local, federal and tribal agencies. "Every state has trust lands that are available for public access, " he continued. "Often, we don't even know where they are. And often, landowners around them don't tell you, either. "We need to make sure that we inventory the land, get it available, and get the public educated as to where the information is so they can go find the public land," Shafer concluded. When I asked the group if they foresaw the day when hikers and birdwatchers and others who use our public lands might also be taxed, there was general agreement that that is inevitable, especially with the recent enactment of recreation fee legislation by Congress. Theodore Roosevelt once stated that "It's not what we have that will make us a great nation, it is in the way in which use it." The September recommendations will go a long way toward that goal.
