I-90 Land Exchange
Legislated by U.S. Senator Slade Gorton and allies in order to escape citizen appeal and litigation, the I-90 land exchange trades some of the last ancient forest in the Gifford Pinchot National Forest for Plum Creek Timber lands a hundred miles away. Opposition by environmentalists and local residents of Randle Washington has resulted in debate, administrative appeal, civil disobedience, and resolutions on land grant reform at the national Sierra Club.
