Citizens voice concerns over logging at first LBL listening session

Emotions ran high at the first public forum at Land Between the Lakes.

It was standing room only as concerned citizen voiced their ideas and concerns over logging and clear cutting.

Public Affairs Officer Jan Bush says their goal was to hear from all concerned parties.

That included 12-year-old Daly Moore, motivated by spending her time in the trees.

“I love exploring and being deep inside the forest. One day I hope to bring my children,” said Daly.

There will be another public forum on Tuesday, June 16 from 6:00 p.m. – 8:30 p.m. at the Stewart County Visitor Center in Dover, Tennessee.
