Reducing Sound Pollution in the Backcountry

At the present time, park staff operates gas-powered tools such as chainsaws to complete a wide range of necessary jobs throughout the park’s backcountry. The funds from this grant would replace older model gas-powered tools with quiet, low or zero emissions battery-operated tools, which will not only be more environmentally friendly, but also greatly improve backcountry visitors’ wilderness experience.
