CALIFORNIA - New Deal for Johnson Valley Off-Highway Vehicle Area

Dear BRC Action Alert Subscriber,

A new deal has been achieved for the Johnson Valley Off-Highway Vehicle Area thanks to the efforts of thousands of supporters, the California Motorized Recreation Council (CMRC), many groups and clubs, and particularly, Rep. Paul Cook (Calif. 8th District). It took 5 years of sweat, work, letters and persistence to prevent the 29 Palms Marine Base expansion from taking over all of Johnson Valley and The Hammers. The deal is a compromise with the Marines; but a win compared to other alternatives.

If you've ever wondered why it's important to vote for politicians who support our side of things, this should permanently convince you of the value of just that.

Here is the link to Congressman Cook's press release for more info: LINK 

Thanks in advance and, as always, if you have any questions or concerns, please contact BRC.

Yellowstone Opened to Limited Snowmobile Access With Non-commercially Guided Acc
On December 15, 2014 the gates opened to another season of snowmobile access to Yellowstone National Park. However, recent warm weather and limited snowfall resulted in very little snowpack on many of the park's interior roads. Until appreciable snowfall is received and conditions on the park's packed, groomed roads improves, snowmobile access to the Park will be limited (see Park Service News release).
