            <edomvd>The objective of this class is to preserve the existing character of the landscape.  This class provides for natural ecological changes; however, it does not preclude very limited management activity.  The level of change to the characteristic landscape should be very low and must not attract attention.  Class I areas include wilderness areas, wild portions of wild and scenic rivers, and other congressionally and administratively designated areas where decisions have been made to preserve a natural landscape.</edomvd>

            <edomvd>The objective of this class is to partially retain the existing character of the landscape.  The level of change to the characteristic landscape should be moderate.  Management activities may attract attention but should not dominate the view of the casual observer.</edomvd>

            <edomvd>The objective of this class is to provide for management activities which require major modification of the existing character of the landscape.  The level of change to the characteristic landscape can be high.  These management activities may dominate the view and be the major focus of viewer attention.</edomvd>
