Welcome to the,
Treasure Valley Trail
Stop the Boulder White Clouds from becoming a national monument!!
President Obama can currently use the Antiquities Act and sign the Boulder White Clouds over as a national monument. This ignores the fact that relevant land management agencies already have the necessary authority to protect these lands. Designating the area as a national monument will effectively take options away from managers as they will no longer have the flexibility to apply appropriate management.
Please contact the representatives listed below via email and phone and let them know we Idahoans and Americans oppose the Boulder White Clouds from becoming a national monument and being permanently off-limits to motorized and mechanized recreation, including off-highway motorcycles, all-terrain vehicles, recreational off-highway vehicles, 4x4s, snowmobiles and mountain bikes.
This would forever ban these opportunities without regard for local processes and decisions on how the land is most appropriately managed. Local citizens and stakeholders deserve a voice in land management decisions, but the extremist environmentalists and Cecil Andrus are pushing the Obama administration and agriculture secretary Tom Vilsack to make the BWC a National Monument. If up to them, this would apply the most restrictive management possible to an enormous tract of public lands while setting aside local collaborative processes.
Please voice your opposition and send or forward to as many Idahoans as possible!!
