Tell Congress Not to Weaken the Wilderness Act!
The U.S. House Natural Resources Oversight Subcommittee held a hearing on May 24, 2017 to look at the Wilderness Act and other bedrock environmental laws with the presumption that these laws have all "gone astray."
That hearing was likely a prelude to yet another attack on the Wilderness Act and our nation’s wild lands!
After all, you don’t need us to tell you America’s wildest public lands and most endangered wildlife face a tenuous future with a virulently anti-wilderness Congress backed by the Trump Administration.
It’s not an exaggeration to say in the next two years the Wilderness Act itself and America’s public lands legacy will literally be on the line.
That’s why we are asking you to TAKE ACTION right away and let Congress know that you expect them to stand up and protect America’s wilderness, public lands and wildlife.
Specifically, please let your senators and representative know that you strongly oppose:
1) Efforts to weaken the Wilderness Act to allow mountain bikes or other mechanical transport in Wilderness;
2) A bill that would force a land exchange to build a 10-mile road for King Cove through the heart of the Izembek Wilderness in Alaska;
3) Any legislation that weakens the Wilderness Act. This includes recent "sportsmen's" bills allowing temporary road construction, water developments, or any kind of habitat manipulation or modification in Wildernesses by state or federal agencies;
4) All legislation that would sell off or transfer America’s federal public lands.
Wilderness Watch and supporters like you have often been the last line of defense standing between America's National Wilderness Preservation System and those who would harm it.
Together, with your help, we’ll continue fighting anti-wilderness and wildlife-destroying proposals in Congress, in order to defend the Wilderness and public lands we all love.
