The Souris Bend WMA has not seen the sort of vandalism and destruction seen at Souris Mouth, but a recent effort by ATV enthusiasts to convince the government to grant ATV's more access is troubling. As with other WMA's, keeping vehicles on designated trails is difficlult.
I have hiked and paddled here for over twenty years and there is more vehicle trafic and more litter each year. That is no coincidence.
The area is a spectacular example of river valley scenery, and is worthy of respect. If the purpose is to provide habitat for both plants and animals, then guns and motors have no role to play.
