The purpose of this EA is to amend the Land and Resource Management Plan (LRMP) for the Wilderness Management Standards and Guidelines (S&Gs). The need for the revised S&Gs is to provide more definable and measurable standards related to the items described in the Proposed Action. Current S&Gs do not provide sufficient direction to determine the trend of the Cloud Peak Wilderness (CPW) condition or require conflicting actions. The proposed S&Gs will facilitate determination of the trend of physical, biological and social aspects of the wilderness resource.
