U.S. may ban off-road vehicles from 109,000 acres in Big Cypress Preserve

As much as 109,000 acres of swamp, wet prairie and cypress forest on the western borders of Broward County could be designated federal wilderness, the highest level of protection, under controversial options being considered by the National Park Service.

Home to deer, panthers, black bears and other wildlife, the land is a portion of two parcels totaling 146,000 acres added in 1988 to Big Cypress National Preserve. Park Service officials are drawing up a management plan for the territory, known as the Addition Lands, and hunters and environmentalists are arguing over whether the plan should include access for swamp buggies and other off-road vehicles. The Addition Lands are currently closed to these vehicles.
