Dear Ric,

Just got this a few minutes ago. From our, "friends" at the Department of Interior.

 

Dear Friend:

Last year President Obama announced the final report of his America's Great Outdoors (AGO) initiative, featuring Americans who are excited about conservation and ready to get involved in the outdoors.  Many listening sessions were held throughout the country.  The public was heard.  You want the outdoors to be relevant and accessible.  You want your special places to be managed sustainably.  But most importantly, you want to help make it happen.

The AGO Report called for the establishment of the Federal Interagency Council on Outdoor Recreation ( FICOR) as one of the vehicles to engaging the public in further identifying those ideas and places where the FICOR can be partners and support.  Bureau of Land Management Director Bob Abbey is the lead in establishing the FICOR and he wants to hear from you.

Please join BLM Director Bob Abbey and the members of the FICOR for this important conference call.

When:             Friday, January 20, 2012

Time:               4:00 p.m. - 5:00 p.m. (EST)

Call Info:         888.946.6305
                        Passcode:   DOI

 
Please RSVP and submit your comments/questions in advance to
DOI_events@ios.doi.gov  by Thursday, January 19, 2012.

 

We hope many of you can get in on this.
 
Sincerely,
 

Michael Swenson

CALIFORNIA - Help Preserve OHV Use On The Six Rivers National Forest
The Six Rivers National Forest in Northern California has a new Forest Supervisor, Merv George. Merv and his family are from the area and I believe it is important for OHV recreationists from across this county who have visited or want to visit this part of California to let him know that you value continued access to historic motorized roads and trails. This part of the state is also home to a number of hard-core anti-access groups who most certainly will be making demands on his office to close roads and trails
