Grizzly West: A Failed Attempt to Reintroduce Grizzly Bears in the Mountain West

The Advent of the ROOTS Coalition and
the Environmental Impact Statement

“No. Hell no!” That was Dan Johnson’s initial reaction to the idea of reintroducing grizzly bears to central Idaho. Johnson represented Resource Organization on Timber Supply (ROOTS), which was a nonprofit interest group based in Idaho that consisted of organized labor and timber industry entities dedicated to bringing these groups together to support their collective interests. By the early 1990s, the future of Idaho’s timber industry was far from certain. The Forest Service recently had cut its timber allotment throughout the West, and in Idaho, the possibility of new wilderness areas threatened to restrict loggers’ access to even more land. In Washington and Oregon, the recent listing of the spotted owl and its critical habitat barred loggers from much of the region’s old-growth forests, and in Idaho, the timber industry worried that if the Fish and Wildlife Service added Pacific salmon and bull trout to the endangered species list, similar restrictions would follow. A new population of grizzly bears was the last thing Idaho’s timber officials wanted, and ROOTS adamantly resisted any talk of their recovery. At the Interagency Grizzly Bear Committee’s (IGBC) annual meeting in December 1993, the Bitterroot Ecosystem Subcommittee planned to present the recovery chapter it had developed over the previous two years, and ROOTS sent Johnson to the meeting with the intention of dissuading the IGBC from pursuing the matter any further.1
