Public Meetings Set for California DRECP

The DRECP will then be prepared to meet the requirements of the Federal Endangered Species Act of 1973, as amended, and the State of California's Endangered Species Act and Natural Communities Conservation Planning Act. The BLM, in compliance with the Federal Land Policy and Management Act, as amended, will consider this NEPA process and the resulting DRECP documents in its analysis toward possible amendment of BLM's California Desert Conservation Area (CDCA) Plan of 1980, as amended.

BRC SPOKESMAN TO TESTIFY AT HOUSE SUBCOMMITTEE HEARING

Amador is expected to share his views regarding the ongoing closure of BLM's Clear Creek Management Area located in Central California's Coastal Mountain Range. BLM has effected the single largest public land closure of its kind in U.S. history by functionally closing 75,000 acres of public lands to all users groups in May, 2008. In 2002, Dirt Rider Magazine listed CCMA as one of the top 10 OHV recreation sites in the country. While the closure only "technically" closed 33,000 acres, it functionally closed 75,000 acres since practically all route networks originate in the closure area.

Johnson Valley Comments Needed

29 Palms Marine Corps base to the East of Johnson Valley wants to expand in size. Instead of expanding east into useless wilderness areas, they want to go West into Johnson Valley with the hopes that the OHV community will not put up much of a fight.

The loss of this area would hurt the entire OHV community.

We can't let them expand West.

What we are asking you to do:

We have set up a letter generator with pre-loaded arguments (Topic sentences) Please select an argument, add 1-2 of your own sentences and send it.

Tell the State Legislature and Governor Brown Hands Off the OHV Trust Fund!!

The legislature needs to hear from the OHV community immediately. Tell them before another dollar is "borrowed" from this user funded program they first need to repay the $112 million (total) they took 2008 and 2009. Good fiscal management of this program should be rewarded and respected, not penalized!

With other sectors of California State Parks facing a fiscal crisis, now is the time to identify those facilities that should be part of the SVRA system. State Parks have already announced plans to close a number of parks due to budget constraints. Instead they should work to identify those units that could offer new OHV opportunities and be kept open and managed by the OHV division.

User Commets Sought in Truckhaven Planning

Complete the on-line questionnaire at http://www.planocotillowells.org/ by March 31.

Help identify key planning issues for OW North by completing the online questionnaire. Your input will help guide early project research!

The Freeman property (also known as Truckhaven/Desert Cahuilla) was acquired by California State Parks in 2006. Senator Denise Ducheny and Senator Dennis Hollingsworth recently convened a group of stakeholders to establish a plan for dividing the Freeman Property between Anza Borrego Desert State Park and Ocotillo Wells State Vehicular Recreation Area (SVRA).

Following the stakeholder group meetings, the plan was finalized under Senate Bill 855. (http://www.planocotillowells.org/documents/SB855.pdf) This legislation specifies that the northwestern portion of the property be annexed to Anza Borrego Desert State Park and the southeastern portion of the property be annexed to Ocotillo Wells SVRA. This map depicts the annexations. The Ocotillo Wells SVRA addition, now called “Ocotillo Wells North” for general planning purposes only, will be included in the General Plan and EIR project that is underway.
