For those of you that have either been to JV or would like to someday hit up some of the best rock crawling in the US please take the time to sign this peition in regards to the prposed changes to the Marine land holdings in the area. Also after you sign the peition it will bring up a page asking for a donation. This is a by product of the web site being used for the petition. You do not have to donate as it doesn't go to the organization that is sponsoring the petition. It would go to the website.
As many of you know, Johnson Valley OHV is being seriously considered by the US Marine Corps as their new training area. The public scoping meetings and studies have been completed. The Public Comment period ends on January 31st, 2009.
Five of the options that were offered took all or a portion of Johnson Valley, the sixth was to do nothing at all (which is unlikely)
Based upon Brad Mitzelfelts letter to Dianne Feinsteins office, we have drafted a new more specific petition that outlines an option that would de-designate a portion of wilderness area that is acceptable to the
Marines. The wilderness area in question is not considered quality wilderness area, AND has already been used for military training in the past.
We need the public's support for the Marines to even CONSIDER this option.
It is imperative that you read and sign, including your email and mailing addresses. Upon the end of the comment period, this petition will be submitted initially to the Marines, and then we will forward the
signatures and addresses to each local legislator.
PLEASE FORWARD THIS LINK TO EVERYONE YOU KNOW WITH AN INTEREST IN SAVING OUR PUBLIC LANDS.
