Presently the township is part of a conflict regarding state and county plans to establish a "managed" designation for the Cloquet Valley State Forest. Many private citizens, property owners and local and regional groups oppose the open unless closed policy the county advocates.. These groups include : The Izaak Walton League of Duluth, Friends of the Cloquet Valley State Forest [1], The American Association of Foresters, Minnesota Chapter, Fish and Wildlife Alliance, Minnesotans for Responsible Recreation, The Sierra Club, The Audubon Society and many others, see below. Feedback to the DNR was overwhelmingly in favor of closed unless posted open but the DNR has chosen to take the most liberal interpretation of the law and push the open unless posted closed rule.
