Johnson seeks to designate wilderness area in grasslands

PIERRE — A part of the Buffalo Gap National Grasslands in southwestern South Dakota would be designated as a wilderness area under a measure introduced Wednesday by South Dakota Sen. Tim Johnson.
Johnson, a Democrat, said the measure would allow balanced, commonsense use of the area covering about 50,000 acres. However, the wilderness designation is likely to face continued strong opposition from some agricultural and outdoor recreation groups.
