Time to Take Action
Our Klamath Basin Water Crisis
Upholding rural Americans' rights to grow food,
own property, and caretake our wildlife and natural resources.



Dear Members,
Our Friends at Citizens for Balanced Uses have prepared the following alert on the Northern Rockies Ecosystem Management Act which is coming back up in the US Congress for a hearing. We urge you to read their material and call your Congressman as directed below to stop this taking of private property.

Citizens for Balanced Use


The old Northern Rockies Ecosystem Protection Act (NREPA) is coming back with a new number. HR980, if passed, will designate 24 million acres of new wilderness in Montana, Idaho, Wyoming and Eastern Oregon.

The bill is scheduled to be heard on May 5th in front of the National Parks, Forests and Public Lands subcommittee. Please take the time to contact this committee. Fax the subcommittee pictures and testimony of how and why these areas are important to you and your family.

The maps of new wilderness contained in this bill are at the following link:

If this bill passes congress, you can say goodbye to multiple use!

Members of congress far removed from the federally managed public land in Montana need to be educated and who better to do this than us. Many times, by putting a personal touch to a message, we all can make an impact on our lawmakers.

Thank You for doing your part!
