Snow Mountain area discussed

LAKE COUNTY -- Representatives of the Tuleyome Organization hosted an informational meeting Tuesday in Clearlake regarding its effort to gain designation of the Berryessa Snow Mountain National Conservation Area (BSM NCA).

The proposed area stretches 100 miles along the inner coastal range of Northern California encompassing 358,643 acres of publicly-managed land.

According to Sara Husby-Good, executive director of the Tuleyome Organization, which is spearheading the effort, establishment of a NCA will improve coordination between federal agencies, protect essential migratory corridors for wildlife adapting their ranges to changing climate; help maintain clean water; and provide additional federal funding opportunities for conservation protection, invasive plant eradication, recreation management and a coordinated multi-agency fire management plan.

In attendance at the presentation were several members of the Sierra Club Lake Group including Victoria Brandon, who announced that she intends to run for District 1 Supervisor in the upcoming election. Also present were representatives of the Family Water Alliance, which opposes the designation Husby-Good said. Additional groups opposing the effort Husby-Good said are the Yolo County Farm Bureau and members of the Off-Highway Vehicle (OHV) community.
