Question[edit]

If there is wildlife to be protected then why is there oil spilling into the river bed? Why is there huge oil spills on the boulders? Construction?

I don't see any reason why LPNF should not follow a similar guideline. Wikipedia cannot assume that its readers know what a national forest is in the United States, or who manages them. Both of those things are key to what a national forest is as opposed to just some random forest that's not a designated unit of land managed by a federal land management agency. We can't wiki-link "National Forest" in the title words because that's against style guidelines. So, it may be somewhat awkward to write it the way it's written, but I don't know of a better way.
