Take Action to Protect Northern Arizona Forests From ORVs
Northern Arizona's forests are under threat from poorly managed motorized recreation and too many roads. The Center for Biological Diversity and other concerned groups in Arizona recommended a road system for the Kaibab National Forest, rejected by the Forest Service, which would have reduced road density in the Williams Ranger District to one mile of road for every square mile of land, prevented off-road driving to pick up downed game, and prohibited irresponsible campers from driving off-road to find a place to camp. We need you to ask the Service to implement our recommendations to protect wildlife and clean water in the Verde River watershed.
Please attend one or both of these upcoming meetings in Williams, Arizona to speak out for quiet recreation in our national forests:
Wednesday, February 24 from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. at the Williams Ranger District, 742 S. Clover Road;
Saturday, March 6 from 1 p.m. to 3 p.m. at thedowntown Williams Recreation Center, 301 Railroad Ave.
In addition to attending the meetings, we also ask that you write a letter to the Forest Service and tell them that you care deeply about this forest, that only Alternative 4 protects the species you care about, and that they need to do more to protect this national treasure. Please use the letter below as an example. Note that it’s important to edit the letter to make it your own so the Service will know how much you care.
