Apache Leap Special Management Area
Proposed Management Plan Meeting
Tuesday April 4, 2017   5PM  Superior High School

To foster comments on the proposed plan for the 800 acre
site that will become the Apache Leap Special Management
Area, the US Forest Service held a meeting Tuesday night.

The area, which was created by Congress for Native

been used for cattle grazing.  A smaller portion of the
acreage, now owned by Resolution Copper, will be donated
for inclusion in the protected area, which will also serve as a
nature and wildlife preserve.

The implementation of the Forest Services' plan is expected
by year's end. It will restrict motorized travel, erect fencing
and encourage walking and hiking.  Access problems are
recognized and are addressed in the 40 page proposal, which
can be found at   Maps and
explanations are on the KQSS website here.

Comments from the public are welcome until May 1st.
