A new feature is coming soon to the FSEEE website. In August, we’ll launch “Ground Truth,” which will offer a lively blend of original articles and commentaries about issues affecting our public lands.
Ground Truth was envisioned by Matt Rasmussen, who will serve as editor. Matt joined the FSEEE staff last month. Actually, he rejoined the staff—he worked at FSEEE in the late 1990s and the early 2000s, serving as the founding editor of Forest Magazine.
With a background in journalism, Matt will investigate issues that are too-often missed by the mainstream media.
Right now, he’s examining federal oversight of grazing on public lands in Nevada. At issue is a ruling by a federal judge that, if upheld by the court of appeals, could have widespread—and damaging—implications for lands managed by the Forest Service and the Bureau of Land Management.
Matt will travel to Nevada in a few days to get a first-hand look at current grazing issues. He’ll post updates about his trip here and on FSEEE’s Facebook page.
Ground Truth will also include shorter articles and thoughtful commentary. We want it to be your go-to source for news and information about our precious public lands!
