Some activists are concerned that a plan to log nearly 300 acres in a southern Indiana state forest will disrupt hiking trails and animal habitats.
Residents fought the projects for decades because of environmental concerns.
The Indiana Division of Forestry says logging is a way to manage the forest for overall health, but advocacy groups say the logging is detrimental.
Department of Natural Resources officials say carefully managed logging can improve the natural habitat, but critics say the department has economic motives.
The DNR and INDOT are working to improve a road that runs through Yellowwood State Forest in Brown County that is currently causing environmental issues.
