Activist Alert! – Forest Service Hosts Over Snow Vehicle Meeting in Sonora, CA

When: On Monday November 3 at 6:30 p.m. in the Sonora Oaks Best Western Inn on Hess Avenue (east of Sonora just off Highway 108).

PLEASE ATTEND IF POSSIBLE so you can learn and share your conerns and input.

What: The Stanislaus National Forest will be hosting an Open House forum to discuss the upcoming USFS planning process that will determine where Over-Snow Vehicle (OSV) usage is appropriate in the local national forest. 

Why: The public is invited to attend the Open House to be informed about the planning process and know how to make effectivecomments when the Alternatives are proposed. The public will also be encouraged to share their initial inputs and concerns at the meeting.  The final plan will designate where snowmobiles (and possibly big-tired over-snow trucks and jeeps) can and cannot legally travel in the national forest.   The plan is part of a settlement from a lawsuit submitted by multiple environmental groups who were concerned about natural resources within areas such as roadless areas and Wild and Scenic eligible rivers being degraded by poorly regulated snowmobile activity.

           CSERC staff will be at the Open House to listen and learn as well as to provide information on the key areas on the Forest where our Center feels that OSV’s affect at-risk resources, such as watershed health and wildlife.  If you have any questions prior to the meeting please contact our staff via email or phone.
