Calling ALL Wilderness supporters! Please act now to let your members of Congress know you oppose these anti-Wilderness bills!
You don't us to remind you that there are currently a number of bills introduced in the U.S. Congress that threaten to undermine America’s Wilderness and public lands legacy.
In order to assist with our efforts with Congress, we are calling on Wilderness supporters to urge their senators and representative to oppose the most egregious, anti-Wilderness bills!
Like we mentioned, the list of anti-Wilderness bills in Congress is long, so we’re focusing on the following bills:
• The "Sportsmen’s Heritage and Recreational Enhancement (SHARE) Act,” an NRA/Safari Club International-backed bill that is nothing more than a thinly disguised measure to gut the 1964 Wilderness Act and the protections afforded to every unit of America’s 110 million-acre National Wilderness Preservation System.
• The “Wheels in Wilderness Bill” (H.R. 1349), which would amend and weaken the Wilderness Act to allow mountain bikes, strollers, wheelbarrows, game carts, survey wheels and measuring wheels in Wilderness.
• A couple of terrible “Border Bills” that purportedly deal with border security, but would actually threaten all of America's Wilderness areas within 100 miles of the southern border with Mexico and within 100 miles of the northern border with Canada, including the border between Alaska and Canada.
• The so-called “Protect Public use of Public Lands Act (S. 2206),” which would release 450,000 acres of America’s Wilderness Study Areas in Montana and potentially open up these wildlands to logging, mining, motorized recreation and road building.
• Any Senate companion bills to H.R. 3905 and H.R. 3115, two bills that promote new mining near the Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness in Minnesota.
