PLEASE donate to CORVA!

http://www.corva.org/donations.html

In PayPal, make sure that you tell them it is a donation for the fight in ELDO National. WE NEED TO RAISE THEM $4,000 in DONATIONS!

CORVA has really stepped it up for us in ELDO. Tucker with the human, has been doing a lot of work for us. While BRC and Cal4wheel have also, CORVA has some things in the works that they DESPRATELY need money for.

I know everyone keeps getting hit with "donate to BRC" (which is important, and something you SHOULD have done!), but CORVA has our backs too....

More details here from an earlier discussion:

I'm in with a short stack of Benjamins, and have talked to a few other donors, as well, but we do need more. CORVA has stepped up to write this check, with the understanding that we, the local users, will provide substantial assistance...

What have they done and why do they need our money?
Fair enough question. They have some good overview material at their site:
http://www.corva.org/join.html

...but the beef of it, for this forest, for Eldorado National Forest, is that they have stepped up to underwrite the consultant to help us prep our responses to the Draft EIS. CORVA has stepped up to write this check, with the understanding that we, the local users, will provide substantial assistance -- it is time to put our money where our mouths are.

Our hope is that by bringing in a specialist, we can refine the issues we have identified already, and direct them in the Forest Service's own words, to upset this broke Draft EIS. The extension that we have is nice, but we need to send this whole Draft EIS back for fundamental rewrite, by taking it to task on procedural errors that would set it up for easy appeal. Essentially, we're looking to refine the issues and questions we have already identified into leverage for legal action.

Thanks randii. I was reading this, thinking it sounded important, but I had no idea who they were or what they did. I'll see what I can give.

It looks like Randii did a good job at answering your question, I recommend visiting their website for more details. I asked them at the rally what will they do differently than what the BRC will do? She had a really good point by saying that the BRC has very similar values but they are spread thin over the entire US and CORVA is very specific to Ca. The lady also said that CORVA has a full time land use attorney available to them. I went home and read their website and I sent off my membership money yesterday, now I can proudly say that I belong to BRC and CORVA!

Compare the membership money needed to join these organizations to the amount of money you spend on your 4x4, motorcycle, or quad (etc) and the fact that this money allows you to use your toys as we move into the future is reason enough to join IMO. I have a $6k dirtbike, my wife has a 3k dirtbike, my kids have a dirtbike, and my yota has sucked at least 20k out of my pocket over the years. By not paying the $30 membership and to loose the ability to play with my toys would be absolutely tragic. Even if you spent only $2500 on a beat up 4x4, what is another $30 so you can use it? The math is easy.

STEP UP and join the fight!
