There's no place on the planet quite like Crater Lake, and some of the people who love it want to give it more protection.
So Oregon Wild proposes a large (500,000+ acres) expansion of wilderness areas in federal forest land outside the national park boundary.
These would be added onto existing wilderness areas, providing some connections between what are now wilderness islands.
Environmental groups are enthusiastic, and some other entities are NOT.
An Oregon Wild rep joins us with the case for the wilderness expansion, followed by Klamath County Commissioner Tom Mallams.
