Protect Our Nation's Roadless Wildlands

#108 WILD NORTHWEST, August 20, 2004

A Message from Northwest Ecosystem Alliance

Keeping the Northwest Wild

Protect Our Nation's Roadless Wildlands

Tell the Bush administration to reinstate the Roadless Area Conservation Rule

The Bush administration is seeking public comments on a new proposal that would abandon the Roadless Area Conservation Rule, which currently protects 58.5 million acres of wild national forest land across America, and replace it with an unwieldy state petition process. The draft rule dictates state governors to submit proposals that either continue roadless area protections, or allow roadless lands to be opened to logging and other development. The federal government would then consider each state petition and decide whether to protect or log in roadless areas.

This is an unnecessary and cumbersome change that will move the country backwards and promote development in the nation's last wild areas.

Comments are due on September 14, 2004. Use our quick email action system to request, once again, that the Forest Service keep the Roadless Area Conservation Rule intact to protect the wild forests of Washington and Oregon, and across America. Go to:
