January 2013 Highlighted Landuse Issues/Links from Team Albright

This landuse update comes to you from Del Albright, Outdoor Recreation Advocate

January 2013 Highlighted Landuse Issues/Links from Team Albright

1.     Johnson Valley, the Hammers – PLEASE sign the petition needing 1000 signatures a day, to request the White House to deny any request by the 29 Palms Marine Base to use land from Johnson Valley OHV area for base expansion.  We love the Marines; but they don’t need our OHV area.   Go here to sign:  http://ultra4racing.com/featured/1000-signatures-a-day-needed-to-help-save-the-hammers/.

2.     Oregon – comments needed on Oregon Dunes Designated Routes Project DEIS, right away.  Best coastal dunes around are in jeopardy and need our help.  Your letter can make a difference.  BRC has a sample letter here: https://www.sharetrails.org/alerts/2013/01/15/oregon--comments-needed-on-oregon-dunes-10c-designated-routes-project-deis.
