Saw this on the Association site and Chris would like WWOR Members to attend if they can.





BLUERIBBON COALITION ACTION ALERT!

Dear BRC Action Alert Subscriber,

The Bureau of Land Management (BLM) Twin Falls District is preparing a Resource Management Plan (RMP) and Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) for the Jarbidge Field Office. The current Jarbidge RMP was completed 19 years ago in 1987.

An RMP can be compared to a county master plan where management direction and objectives are defined for specific resources and areas. They address issues including livestock grazing, recreation, wildlife habitat, off-highway vehicle use, camping and even energy and mineral development.

The BLM will identify issues that the new RMP will address and then develop a range of alternatives each addressing the issues slightly differently. The BLM will also develop a 'preferred alternative.'

The BLM is in the initial stage of the RMP development, so it's important for recreationists to become involved now. To provide you with an opportunity to learn about the planning process, to share information and to submit feedback on the RMP/EIS and the preliminary issues and planning criteria, the Jarbidge Field Office has scheduled four open house sessions.

I could probably go, but I need a ride. Unless a miracle happens and I have the alternator fixed tonight. And I agree, get a hold of Chris HOW? Oh I forgot, I just need to call you :)

I am driving from Meridian and would sure like to have some folks jump in and go with me. Please post up if you have any interest in participating in this. The more support we have the better.
