SB 229 is now on Governor Eric Holcomb’s desk. He has until March 25 to sign it. If he does not sign the bill, it becomes law the next day.
This relatively undisturbed forest in the Back Country Area (BCA) of Morgan-Monroe State Forest has great species complexity and high species richness in the absence of intense forest management. One tract of Yellowwood has been logged, but other parts of the BCA remain intact for now, and IFA will continue the Ecoblitz in these unlogged areas.
