S. 799 America’s Red Rock Wilderness Act of 2009 will close the doors on Utah recreation!

The wilderness bills keep rolling along in Washington DC. They are after 9.5 million acres in Utah and the Red Rock area this time. The Omnibus bill was not enough, so now they want to surround Moab Utah with Wilderness!
Here are the areas they are attempting to make into wilderness in this bill.
Great Basin wilderness area – 2,239,700 acres
Zion and Mojave desert Wilderness area – 375,500 acres
Grand Staircase-Escalante Wilderness area – 1,729,540 acres
Moab-LA Sal Canyons Wilderness area – 296,800 acres
Henry Mountains Wilderness area – 434,300 acres
Glen Canyon Wilderness area – 902,000 acres
San Juan-Anasazi Wilderness area – 531,300 acres
Canyonlands Basin Wilderness area – 725,700 acres
San Rafael Swell Wilderness area – 1,106,900 acres
Book Cliffs and Uinta Basin Wilderness area – 1,168,800 acres
This bill was introduced by Sen Durbin of Illinois.

Please take the time to write to your elected representatives, and tell them enough is enough! Most of these lands do not meet the original intent of the Wilderness Act of 1964 “A wilderness, in contrast with those areas where man and his own works dominate the landscape, is hereby recognized as an area where the earth and its community of life are untrammeled by man, where man himself is a visitor who does not remain.”
If we want to have anyplace left in Utah to recreate, we need to stop this land grab again NOW!

Rich

Thanks for the info on the cosponsors of this bill.
I have written to Senator Boxer and Feinstein a number of times on different wilderness bills, and get the same basic canned response that we need to protect American Wilderness, blah, blah, blah.

But I will keep writing to them, and they will get tired of hearing from me one of these days.
