I just got these comments from another local club here in So Cal. I find it
quite alarming and I honestly think Feinsteins office is lying but either
way, here it is..
get all your groups writing....plaster this all over the web...
Spread the word.

begin quote
At our meeting last night, our political chairman said that he had
contacted Sen. Fienteins office about her not supporting Boxers Wilderness
Act. He was told that Fiensteins office had recieved over 10,000 letters in
favor of support , and about 100 against support. Let's get on the ball.
Pass the word to everyone you know. Also let the groups from other forms of
recreation you may be involved with know. Call her office, or better yet,
send a letter. She does not accept e-mails, because she gets so many off
them. At least that's the response I have always recieved.
Everyone's recreational freedom is at stake. If recreation is not your
thing, Think how bad the wildfires were last year, it's only going to get
worse without management.

A little help ...

February 26, 2003

Senator Dianne Feinstein
United States Senate
331 Hart Senate Office Building
Washington, DC 20510

Fax: (202) 228-3954

Honorable Senator Feinstein,

Please oppose the Wilderness expansion proposals introduced by the Honorable Senator Boxer. These Wilderness proposals negatively impact fire protection access that we need to safeguard the scenic and resource values of the great State of California.

California (and the nation's land management agencies) can do a better job at cooperative land management, something better than designated Wilderness. We need land management where habitat protection is not gained at the expense of resource protection, or a variety of recreation opportunities.

I urge you to offer an alternative to these restrictive Wilderness proposals, with something better in the spirit of the Quincy Library Group legislation you introduced into Congress in 1998. I understand the public input and consensus agreement achieved with the QLG legislation demanded considerable resources to accomplish, but I believe the same effort applied to the lands involved in Senator Boxer's Wilderness proposals will produce a positive outcome.

The shared common goals of fostering backcountry resource and fire protection, ecological integrity of diverse habitat, assuring adequate resource and recreation access opportunity, and providing economic stability for the communities adjacent to these lands demand a flexible management plan that is less restrictive than designated Wilderness.

Please honor my request to oppose Senator Boxer's Wilderness proposals.

Wilderness Act

YotaRunner said:
Is there a link to the act itself???? I'm just trying to find more info.....

I looked through her web site, and talk about an eco-freak......

It's not this one is it????/

Wilderness Act??

The link you found is only a small part of the proposed Act. One of the problems the groups opposed to the Act have, is the poor information available regarding the extent of land included into the Act.

With the Senator's office claiming thousands of manhours of cooperative research and agreement of the Act between "all involved parties," you would think the good Senator would have detailed maps of the areas? No, Not available.

You would also think her office would include reports of where these "interest groups" came to agreement and altered the proposed areas to make concessions and compromise? No, Not available.

The California Wild Heritage Act can be found on the California Wilderness Coalition web site.

This goals of this Wilderness Act are being proposed peacemeal (through campaigns like the link you found on the Senator's website) and through the California Forest Plan Revisions in process, in addition to reintroducing the Act to Congress.

The proposed expansion of Wilderness can be found on the CWC's Wild Places web page. They have a habit of viewing wild land as either "potential Wilderness" or "damaged land lost to development." There is no middle ground of shared use land management with these radical groups.

The drive to convert large tracts of land to Wilderness free of mankind is a major goal of the Wildlands Project, and is both Nationwide (search the Earth Island Institute and The Wildlands Project), and Worldwide (search Conservation International). Yes, they will be making exclusionary land management demands in your home state (and home country).

Happy Trails!
