Write your representatives.


The proposed federal land sell off in Bush's FY07 Budget includes lands
in previously protected areas in Colorado - please write or call your
representatives if this matters to you (especially Wayne Allard).
21,572 acres are going up for sale in Colorado, and 85,000 in California!!
Representative Udall of Boulder:
Rep. Mark Udall, D-Colo., sees it as a destructive way to pay for what
he considers reckless tax cuts. "It's like selling your homestead to pay your credit cards," he said. [Denver Post, 2/8/06]

Included in this land sale are:
A one mile long roadless area in the White River National Forest that
encompasses Elliot Creek about a mile north of the Eagles Nest Wilderness in Summit County. The Colorado sale list extends to lands near Grays and Torreys peaks, a parcel west of Vail ski resort and land around St. Mary's Glacier, a popular snowboarding site.

More on protecting our Wild areas!
