Slate Range proposed wilderness

The slate range between Trona and PV is part of the CA Wilderness coalition and Feinstein's proposed next wilderness act. Isham Cyn, the premier tougher PV trail and Fish Cyn trails are there as well as many other roads throughout the range. It would be a disgrace to true wilderness to allow this and we all need to get the word to Feinstein while the bill is still in this early phase of development.

Can somebody with her link handy post it? Thanks

There is also mention of the Surprise Canyon “Wild and Scenic River” (WSR) in the proposal, as well as maps that show the elimination of the current “cherrystem” of Surprise Canyon Road and Panamint City from the current wilderness areas on both BLM and Death Valley National Park land.

The issue of the entire proposal that CWC has submitted is going to be big and far reaching. There will be a lot of work to do fighting it, not only for access in the Panamint Valley region, but also the rest of the Southern California deserts. We will be focusing our efforts on PV, but not limiting ourselves to it

I went to Harry Bakers meeting discussing this a few months back. John Stewart and Ron Schiller are going to be heavily involved in this as well, so know that we are paying attention and a few of us are watching this area very closely.

You should find a way to make it to the next meeting...

I know you John and Ron and others are on it, my message is for all the others out there and for the PVD crowd. Let me know when the next meeting is scheduled and will do my best to be there, thanks.

There was a meeting several weeks ago with some of us and 2 of her staff assigned to this wilderness stuff. We (us users have been asked by her staff to 1) give them a wish list of our own and some of us are working on this and 2) to give them the roads in the wilderness areas but they have to be GPS'd for them.
Note: They are attempting to verify info given them in a chev. impala. But we are in on the ground floor and have a chance to influence which wilderness areas she brings forward. We were told that for sure it wouldn't be the whole 22 which the CWC had brought to her.
