Wilderness Areas Affected by Public Law 111-11 3/30/2009 - Omnibus Public Land Management Act of 2009

This public law also designated potential wilderness acreage that will be added to the National Wilderness Preservation System when the following conditions have been met: John Krebs Wilderness addition (130 acres), Joshua Tree Wilderness addition (43,300 acres) will be added when non-conforming uses stop and inholdings have been acquired; Kimberling Creek Wilderness addition (349 acres) will be added when 1) non-conforming uses stop or 2) five years time passes; Oregon Badlands Wilderness addition (25 foot road corridor); Roaring River Wilderness addition (900 acres) will be added when non-conforming uses stop; Izembek Wilderness addition (34093 acres) will be added after the Alaska state legislature approves the land exchange for a single-lane gravel road between the communities of King Cove and Cold Bay (progress update: The state of Alaska presented a bill in April 2008 to the state legislature for the proposed land trade.  The bill passed the state house but did not pass the state senate.  The state senate will likely not visit the proposed bill until their session in January 2010.  After the legislature approves the land exchange an EIS will have to be developed before the land exchange and road are to begin.).
