News Flash, the California Fish and Game Commission voted to NOT list the flat tailed horned lizard as endangered or threatened. This petition submitted by the CBD a year and a half ago is finally resolved in favor of off-roaders, farmers, renewable energy companies and land management agencies. Why do we care? If it were to become listed, the CBD would likely then sue State Parks (Ocotillo Wells) and ask for many restrictions be implemented. Open riding would probably be a thing of the past and the park would never be the same. Now the park will begin to allow special events to take place again like Desert Safari, SDORC's Lost Lizard Fun Run, geo caches, movie shooting etc.
