San Bernardino Forest (CA) Releases EA for Motorized Travel

BLUERIBBON COALITION ACTION ALERT!

Dear BRC Action Alert Subscriber,

San Bernardino National Forest Releases EA For Motorized Travel Plan

The San Bernardino National Forest, located in southern California, has just released their Draft Environmental Analysis (DEA) for the Motorized Travel Management project. The Forest Service (FS) will be accepting comments for the next 30 days.

This project will make limited changes to the Forest's motorized transportation system and implement the 2005 Travel Management Rule. If you would like to review the DEA in detail, an electronic copy on their website: http://www.fs.fed.us/r5/sanbernardino/projects/ohv.shtml. A copy of the DEA is also available for view at the San Bernardino National Forest Supervisor's Office.

The three action alternatives that are presented in the DEA combine many of the comments and recommendations that have been provided at public meetings and from other contacts. This is your opportunity to examine the details about the project, including measures designed to protect resources or alleviate potential problems you may be concerned about. The release of the DEA begins the formal comment period, during which the FS will consider all public comments before issuing a decision.

Written, facsimile, hand-delivered, and electronic comments concerning this action will be accepted until November 13, 2008.

THE COMMENT DEADLINE IS NOVEMBER 13, 2008
