Dear BRC Action Alert Subscribers,
We recived an urgent action alert from the folks at the Outer Banks Preservation Association (OBPA).
The OBPA folks are trying to keep one of the last remaining Outer Bank beaches open for vehicles. The U.S. Senate is considering a bill that would stop the National Park Service from closing Cape Hatteras National Seashore to vehicle access.
BRC's Greg Mumm is working with the OPBA on this issue and said it is distressing to see the wealthy foundations treat both visitors and local recreational users in such a shabby way. Mumm noted; “When the Cape Hatteras National Seashore was created it was intended to protect and preserve recreational access to the beaches.” Mumm recently visited the area, met with the OBPA folks and saw firsthand what is really at stake. “The real issues and the needs of the local communities don't seem to matter to the Park Service. They seem to care more about the wishes of the extreme environmental groups than Congressional intent.” Mumm added.
