Protecting America's Wild Legacy: Our federal lands are under attack!

Friends,

Our public lands and national monuments – in California and across the nation - are under an unprecedented attack.  You are invited to join us for a special presentation next week at the Inyo Council for the Arts in Bishop at 6:30 PM on Wednesday, May 17 to learn more about these increasing threats to our natural heritage and how you can help defend our public lands.

Millions of acres of treasured federal forests, deserts, and recreation areas are now at risk as a result of recent Executive Orders and proposed legislation.  A number of these special natural, cultural and historic areas, including the newly established Bears Ears National Monument in Utah, were designated with strong support from Tribal governments in western states.  In California, the review is targeting the Giant Sequoia National Monument, San Gabriel Mountains National Monument, and the Mojave Trails National Monument, among others.

It’s time to send Washington, DC a strong signal that we don’t want to see our protected federal wildlands and cultural resources lose their special designations and safeguards. 

The Sierra Club, INYO 350, Friends of the Inyo, and the Southern Utah Wilderness Alliance are jointly hosting this presentation on Wednesday, May 17 at 6:30 PM to explain what’s at stake and how you can help.

Please join us and bring a friend.  Light refreshments will be served.  And please RSVP to fran.hunt@sierraclub.org so we know how to plan. Call (703 424 3143) or email me if you have any questions.  

Thank you
