BLUE MOUNTAIN FOREST PLAN REVISION - YOUR COMMENTS NEEDED BY AUG 15TH! (Aug '14) A message from your Land-Use Chair:  Your help is needed by sending comments to the Forest Service on the Proposed Revision of the Forest Plan for the Umatilla Forest which is about half in Washington and half in Oregon.  We refer to the area as the Blue Mountains.  WSSA has three clubs in that area and lots of our members ride there.

Here are some points you may include in your letter:

 

-- I support Alternate ‘D’ also.  It has no Back Country Non-motorized (MA3A) which has limited use.  We support Multi-use management strategies on public lands.

-- Alternate ‘D’ has no Wildlife Corridors (MA3C) compared to Alternate ‘E’.  Large animals such as Elk Deer are seldom seen in the higher elevations when deep snows are present.

 

-- Alternate ‘D’ has no new Preliminary Admin. Recommended (PAR) Wilderness Areas (MA1B).  Alternate ‘E’ has three new additions. Their Summery of Analysis indicates no new Wilderness Areas are needed ‘because current wilderness areas are not exceeding capacity…... and are unlikely to exceed capacity of existing wilderness areas and is unlikely to result in a need for more wilderness in the next 15 years’.  (pp.148-149)

If you use the electronically submittal it shouldn't take long.  The important thing is you submit something.
