It’s time for horsemen, mountain bikers and users of off-highway vehicles to speak up. The Beaver Meadows and Saul’s Creek riding areas are being threatened. Don’t think for a minute that your comments won’t help. Speak up now.
Spring Creek has been affected (horses too), and these areas are next. The powers-that-be need to understand that society is evolving. More citizens want to enjoy their Public Lands via OHV use than ever before. Responsible OHV use is the issue, and closing access to our public lands is not the fix.
Get involved by voicing your concerns. Give your comments by Oct. 18 to Nancy Berry, by calling the Columbine Ranger District, 884-1412, faxing it to 884-2428 or visiting www.fs.fed.us/r2/sanjuan/projects/projects.shtml and review the proposed alternatives. To make comments valid, give your contact information and sign your name.
