TAKE ACTION NOW!!
As you all know, Oregon Wild is again attempting to gain support for their “Crater Lake Wilderness Proposal” and they were hoping we wouldn’t notice. You may recall that Oregon Wild proposed this in September 2009 and we stopped them. At that time we knew we won the battle but not the war. We knew they would be back.
Most recently they submitted a petition with over 30,000 signatures to our US Senators. At that time I asked all of you to call and email your Senators to express your opinion on the matter. If you want to read Oregon Wild’s proposal and their map so you can see what they are trying to take away from you, you can do so by visiting this link: http://www.oregonwild.org/wilderness/crater-lake-wilderness-proposal As you will see on their page that they use many, many half-truths and lies to push their agenda.
The Rogue Snowmobilers are gearing up for another fight with Oregon Wild. In the meantime we have others who have already started the fight and we need to help them NOW!
I am asking you to do the three things below NOW!
1) PLEASE READ AND SIGN THE ATTACHED RESOLUTION:
Attached is a PDF copy of the resolution and it can be signed by individuals as well as groups. It is being circulated to Chambers of Commerce and County Commissioners in all of the impacted counties including Douglas, Jackson, Josephine, Klamath and Deschutes.
Fill in the name of the individual or group at the bottom and email them to firstname.lastname@example.org and to email@example.com for distribution to the correct entities.
2) HEALTHLY FORESTS HEALTHY COMMUNITIES ACTION ALERT
Next go to http://www.healthyforests.org/action_center?vvsrc=%2fcampaigns%2f43318%2frespond and use their email system to send a message to our US Senators, US Representatives and the USFS. Just fill in your email and zip code and the pre-composed message will be sent. You also have the option of customizing your message if you so choose.
While you are on their site you may want to join for free to get other action alerts. I have been getting them for years and it is a good source of information.
Share this with other outdoor clubs, organization, friends and co-workers who share our perspective that we should be able to recreate in our public lands. We also support those jobs that deal with recreation as well as sustainable forestry that supplies jobs for our economy and help deal with fire risks and bug and disease infestations that kill our forests.
