  • Two Minutes to Stop 13 Million Acre Closures and More

    Dear Mike,
    I thought you would want to hear about President Obama's recently released, but little known America Great Outdoor Initiative, which has the potential to lock you out of millions of acres of public lands, as well as take away your private property rights. The good news is this Initiative has just started and if lots of people like you speak up and take two minutes to send letters it can be turned around.
    Thanks for taking action.

    America Great Outdoors Initiative seeks to Close Public Lands-
    Due to the leak of internal White House document showing secret plans to designate 13 million of acres as National Monuments and Wilderness without public input, President Obama announced on 3/29/10 his America Great Outdoor Initiative to encourage local involvement in the crafting of this new plan, which will supposedly encourage urban youth to get out and enjoy the Backcountry and preserve access to the outdoors.
    This is more Washington double talk since locking the majority of the public out of their public lands via Wilderness and Monument designation will discourage the most popular forms of outdoor recreation, such as Off Road Vehicle use and in many cases Mountain Bikes. This will clearly discourage the public from enjoying the backcountry. There is just no way reducing access can be preserving access.
    President Obama held a last minute conference on 4/16/10 in Washington DC to encourage local partnerships, but after polling over 60 local organizations we could not find one who had been invited. The folks who were invited and who are partners, were those who support closure of public lands such as Sierra Club, Wilderness Society etc.
    Of particular interest is Government Landscape Wide Planning (including private property) and designation of Wildlife Corridors, as proposed in the President's Outdoors Initiative, are also key elements in the United Nations Wildlands Project, which seeks to make 50% of America off limits to humans (Yellow and Red on the Wildlands Project map). It appears that all those invited to the DC Conference also support the Wildlands Project. If you don't then ACT NOW by clicking here to send your letter!

    The goals of the America Great Outdoors Initiative is laudable, to encourage local involvement, increase access to public lands and Encourage the Public to get our in the Backcountry, but as you may have guessed the proposed policies are heading in the opposite direction.
    The President has asked for public involvement, so letís take advantage of his offer and speak up to ensure this Initiative stay true to the goals. Please send your letter now and ask your friends to send a letter too
    You can read more about the United Nations Wildlands Project and see the map at
    You can read the Presidentís 4 page outline for this Outdoor Initiative at
    The President has created a website where the public can post topics and comment on his proposed America Great Outdoor Initiative. Normally this kind of forum is taken over by the vocal minority who seem to favor closure, but lately the silent majority, which probably includes you, have been speaking up. However we need more people to comment or we will lose ground. Please take a few minutes to register and most importantly vote for topics you support. Threads have been started on the topics of removing financial barriers, improving agency accountability, sustaining rural communities, and promoting forest health among many other good ideas. You can also post your own comments.
    Remember the world is run by those who speak up.

    Whoaaaaaa baby! Orwelian doesn't really cover this crap! That Wildlands project and Oblah-blah's American Great Outdoor Initiative is freaking scary shit! I just wrote two separte letters, one dealing with each program, and sent copies to all my local reps and Mr. Oblah-blah. Jesuz, this is getting so far out of the realm of reality it isn't funny.

        Thank you for posting,

        Date: 5/8/2010

        Dear Secretary Salazar,

        Closing 13 million acres to people who presently enjoy recreating there is not acceptable; I do not consent.

        Wilderness and Monument are the most restrictive forms of land designation and reduce access. We need to revert some of these lands back to Multiple Use in order to promote access for urban youth and all Americans.

          Mark Levin talked about this on his show yesterday. Of course he is not an OHV person, or probably doesn't even know what an OHV is, he was adament about stopping growth of government owned land. Here is the article that got him started:

          I always thought it interesting that Clinton signed the Grand Staricase Escalante bill at the Grand Canyon and did not have the guts to do it in Utah.
