Short Description of Activity

Amy Stuart drafted extensive comments on BLM’s Proposed Grazing Regulation Revision and the Council on Environmental Quality’s proposed efforts to water down NEPA. We sent hard copies of these comments to the respective agencies, submitted them electronically, and shared them with OR Senators Wyden and Merkley.

Reflection/Evaluation

We are extremely fortunate that Amy Stuart is so generous with her time, and her extensive knowledge of natural resource issues. As an experienced technical editor I polish up the comments, then send them to Rynda for her input. We’re a good team 🙂

In the future Rynda would like to have comments like these come from our PNW BRAT team which consists of 8 separate NW Broadbands.
