Important Wilderness Meeting Announcement
LOCATION CHANGE! Meeting moved to High School Auditorium

What: Rehberg Rocky Mountain Front Heritage Act Listening Session
When: Saturday, April 21 at 2:30 PM
Where: Auditorium, Choteau Public Schools,  204 7th Ave NW, Chouteau, MT
Who: All members of the public and media

Dear BRC Action Alert Subscriber,

Last Tuesday we blasted news about an important Wilderness meeting in Choteau, Montana. Apparently, public response was such that a larger venue is required. The meeting will be held at the Choteau Public School Auditorium, 204 7th Ave NW in Chouteau, MT.

In case you missed our original alert, Rep. Rehberg is holding a public listening session to discuss the implications of the Rocky Mountain Front Heritage Act, introduced by Senator Max Baucus and cosponsored by Senator Jon Tester. The meeting had been scheduled to be at the Choteau Country Club. 

As we mentioned in our original alert the bill would expand Montana's already abundant Wilderness by approximately 67,112 acres; as well as designate a massive 208,160 acre "Conservation Management Area." The bill would affect public lands along the Rocky Mountain Front east of Choteau and Augusta.
More info on the bill here: http://www.baucus.senate.gov/?p=general&id=86

Dan Thompson with the Ravalli County Off Road Users Association penned an informative opinion piece on the bill and we thought we'd pass it along.
