Help BRC draw the line on "conflict" and defend the last remaining motorized access to Clam Beach in northern California.

Dear BRC Action Alert Subscriber,<?xml:namespace prefix = "o" ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:office" /> 

<?xml:namespace prefix = "st1" ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:smarttags" />Northern California is home to many spectacular beachfront recreation areas. Sadly, the vast majority of the beaches have been closed to motorized use because of "environmental concerns." Now, one of the last remaining beaches open to motorized access is slated to be closed because certain selfish special interest groups are screaming "conflict."

Could "conflict" be the last nail in the coffin for motorized coastal access? Could bogus claims of "conflict" close your favorite road, trail or area?

A recent feature article in the BlueRibbon Magazine exposed how bogus claims of conflict is a new item in the anti-access crowd's tool box. Conflict! A Reality Check - by Art Seamans, documents how this tool is promoted by anti-access groups.  The article is available on the web at:

California's extreme brand of "environmental" activists are pushing the Humboldt County Board of Supervisors to shut down historic street-licensed motorized access to a popular beach area in the Redwood Empire in Northern California because of "conflict" with non-motorized users -- even though 99% of California's beaches are already closed to motorized access!

Don't let this happen! The Humboldt County Board of Supervisors is expected to vote on the Clam and Moonstone Beach Management Plan on July 19.  Please send an email to the county asking them to preserve historic motorized and other uses of this beach.  Ask them also to work with local recreation groups in a cooperative manner so that both access and important resource values are protected.

BlueRibbon has activated our Rapid Response Center to help you send that email. Click here:

Conflict resolution does not mean that you continue the practice of discriminating against motorized uses.  Rather it could mean that you redirect those seeking "quiet recreation" to the other 99% of California's beaches that are closed to motorized access.

Thanks for taking time to fight this bogus “conflict” stuff. Your effort will help save the last remaining coastal access.
