Citizens for Balanced Use Newsletter
Over these last 8 years we have received hundreds of letters and pictures of new gates, rip, slash, and seed projects that have completely removed multiple use facilities and opportunities. Many of our members offer to help in any way possible and the board and members and supporters of CBU are doing all we can everyday to forward the multiple use access concept.
Our CBU Banquet was a complete success this year again with a sold out crowd. Stacy Bragg made an announcement at the banquet about the Gallatin Collaborative (GC) project which he has been engaged in for nearly the last year. The GC is ready to make their efforts public and it is time for me to ask for your help in regaining access to the Hyalite Porcupine Buffalo Horn Wilderness Study Area for multiple use recreation. Whether this results in rotational use or shared use or limiting use equally between users or what ever is decided during this process, the people engaged in this process will make the decision.
The HPBH WSA is our backyard in Bozeman, Livingston, Big Sky and the Paradise Valley. We need to get involved or don't complain. I will be attending most of these meetings along with others and I would invite you to be one of these others.
There was a pre registration form to fill out but many of the reservations are still remaining and I have been told that no one wanting to attend will be turned away. This is an opportunity for anyone interested to please attend!
Below is the schedule with times, dates and places. Notice I have listed above each meeting the number of reservations not reserved.
