104 STAT. 4578 PUBLIC LAW 101-633 —NOV. 28, 1990 Proposed", dated July 1990, and which shall be known as the Lusk Creek Wilderness; and (7) certain lands comprising approximately 940 acres, as generally depicted on a map entitled "Panther Den Wilderness— Proposed", dated July 1990, and which shall be known as Panther Den Wilderness. SEC. 4. DESCRIPTION AND MAPS. As soon as practicable after the enactment of this Act, the Secretary of Agriculture (hereafter in this Act referred to as the "Secretary") shall file maps and legal descriptions of each wilderness area designated by this Act with the Committee on Agriculture, Nutrition, and Forestry of the Senate, and the Committees on Agriculture and Interior and Insular Affairs of the House of Representatives. Each such map and legal description shall have the same force and effect as if included in this Act, except that correction of clerical and typographical errors in such legal descriptions and maps may be made. Each such map and legal description shall be on file and available for public inspection in the office of the Chief of the Forest Service, Department of Agriculture. SEC. 5. ADMINISTRATION OF WILDERNESS AREAS. Subject to valid existing rights, each wilderness area designated by this Act shall be administered by the Secretary in accordance with the provisions of the Wilderness Act, except that any reference in such provisions to the effective date of the Wilderness Act shall be deemed to be a reference to the effective date of this Act. SEC. 6. ADJACENT AREAS. Congress does not intend that designation of wilderness areas in the State of Illinois lead to the creation of protective perimeters or buffer zones around each wilderness area. The fact that nonwilderness activities or uses can be seen or heard from areas within the wilderness shall not, of itself, preclude such activities or uses up to the boundary of the wilderness areas. SEC. 7. HUNTING, FISHING, AND TRAPPING. As provided in section 4(d)(7) of the Wilderness Act, nothing in this Act shall be construed as affecting the jurisdiction or responsibilities of the State of Illinois with respect to wildlife and fish in the national forests in Illinois. SEC. 8. FIRE, INSECTS, AND DISEASE CONTROL. As provided in section 4(d)(1) of the Wilderness Act, the Secretary may take such measures as may be necessary to control fire, insects, and diseases within any area designated by this Act. SEC. 9. CEMETERY ACCESS. The Secretary shall permit relatives and descendants of those interred in cemeteries located within the wilderness areas designated by this Act, and those accompanying such relatives and descendants, to access and maintain such cemeteries. The Secretary shall regulate such appropriate access and maintenance to minimize any detrimental effects on the wilderness resource or any uses incompatible with the provisions of the Wilderness Act.
