From the Western Wild blog by Dave Showalter:

Good news! The 44,720 acre parcel in the Wyoming Range known as “The 44? is protected from the planned natural gas development! I first visited the Wyoming range in August and have written about it here, and contributed to an HCN article.

US Forest Service Bridger-Teton Supervisor Jaque Buchanan said “After considering all the alternatives, and the environmental impacts associated with each, I have determined this is the best course of action. No single factor led me to this decision. Rather, it was the combination of the sensitivity and values of the area, the magnitude of other activities currently underway or planned with potentially cumulative impacts, and the concerns of citizens, organizations and other agencies.”
