Twenty-five or so people filled the meeting room at the Coronado National Forest’s Nogales Ranger Station on March 30 and spent about four hours discussing one topic: roads.

The diverse group, which is comprised of a few locals and called the Collaborative Alternative Team (CAT), is tasked with offering an alternative plan to the U.S. Forest Service’s travel management plan. In simpler terms, it’s the document that details which of the Forest Service’s roads it plans to continue maintaining and which it will ditch.

Aside from swapping thoughts on which of the routes were most important, the crew also used the time at last week’s meeting to share information about their individual areas of expertise. It was a time, for example, for the core CAT team members – most of whom made the trek down from Tucson – to exchange knowledge with the locals.

Patrick Connor, who represents cultural and archeological interests for the CAT team, asked one of the local park rangers about the biggest enforcement issues in the area.

Jim Coleman of the Coronado National Forest’s Nogales District was quick to respond. “Unregulated, unauthorized, destructive mining operations, prospecting operations. That’s a big one,” Coleman said.
