The 2007 Boxer California Wild Heritage Bill S-493 proposes 36 new Wilderness additions totaling over 1.1 million acres

 

  • It includes three inappropriate Wilderness additions in the Sequoia, which would close 46 existing trails to multiple use.

  • Motorized groups have adopted at least 7 trails within the area proposed to be closed to them

  • None of these volunteer groups were contacted to ask if they thought these Wilderness proposals were appropriate

  • None of these areas were recommended for Wilderness by the Sequoia National Forest

Below is a simple petition opposing any more Wilderness Areas in California

The bill will probably be scheduled for a vote about six months from now. Contact your Congressman & let them know how you feel.
