BlueRibbon Coalition

A Message From BRC's Executive Director

Dear BlueRibbon Coalition Members and Supporters:

I hope this email finds you all well and looking forward to spending a great Thanksgiving Holiday with your friends and family.  On behalf of everyone at the BlueRibbon Coalition, I want to wish you a Happy Thanksgiving!

I also want to draw your attention to a few things we are working on:

Our latest legal update includes an amazing denial by the U.S. Forest Service (USFS) that their policy to manage Recommended Wilderness Areas (RWA) as if those RWAs were congressional designated Wilderness exists. What makes the denial amazing is that we have written copy of that policy, and we've included a link to it in our update! To quote our alert:  "The whole point of this suit is to find out which version reflects reality - ours or the USFS!"

This is an example of why our legal program is so important. You can read our alert and learn more about our legal efforts here:

ANOTHER MASSIVE NATIONAL MONUMENT PUSHED IN UTAH!

ANOTHER MASSIVE NATIONAL MONUMENT PUSHED IN UTAH!

Greetings Utah BRC members and supporters...

Given the news of this week, we felt a need to update our update. We hate to inundate your inbox like this, but the threat is real, and you need to know about it.  

Situation:
For whatever reason (November election, perhaps?) the Washington, DC.., Wilderness Lobby has twisted their proverbial throttle to "WIDE OPEN."

From Montana, we learn the Wilderness lobbyists feel "emboldened by election results" and are pushing the incredulously named "Forest Jobs and Recreation Act." That's Montana Senator Jon Tester's pitch to add an additional 600,000 acres to Montana's already impressive 3.5 million plus acres of Wilderness.  

And in California, our friends at the American Lands Rights Association recently sent an action alert noting plans for yet another new National Park are in overdrive. Ditto for Wilderness efforts in Colorado, New Mexico and Nevada.

Giant Sequoia National Monument Management Plan Released

Giant Sequoia National Monument Management Plan promotes protection and Ecological Restoration through science and collaboration

Giant Sequoia National Monument Management Plan

PORTERVILLE, Calif.—Today, Forest Supervisor, Kevin B. Elliott, released a new Giant Sequoia National Monument Management Plan (Monument Plan) for one of this Nation’s national treasures.  The Monument Plan guides restoration efforts for giant sequoia ecosystems, watersheds, habitat for old-forest dependent wildlife, and the protection of mountain communities.

Regional Forester, Randy Moore, selected Alternative B and one element of Alternative E (Moses Wilderness recommendation) as the basis for the Monument Plan.

Two years of public collaboration provided the sidebars for a strategic vision for the Giant Sequoia National Monument (Monument). “The public’s tirele

ss efforts have resulted in a framework to restore and manage 33 giant sequoia groves, provide healthy watersheds, homes for unique wildlife, as well as provide spectacular recreation adventures to the American people”, stated Elliott, Forest Supervisor. “Throughout this Monument Plan there is a theme of ecological restoration based on a foundation of science and a set of strong protocols.”

Today’s action culminates years of collaborative efforts with multiple agencies, the scientific community, and an engaged public to develop management direction based on public collaboration and current science.
