Short Description of Activity

Met for committee and forest service reports and workshop on writing effective comments. Also there was discussion of recommended wilderness in the Mt. Taylor RD; pros and cons of management.


Goal is always to lobby for the most recommended wilderness and/or special management of at risk areas. Showing up is 1/2 the battle, and not many other conservation groups do, except for the Native Plant Society people. They are there because I got them involved several years ago, and are very effective at making their voices heard also.
