Oppose Commercial Logging in the Rattlesnake National Recreation Area

This petition made change with 81 supporters!


Dear Ms. Baker,

We are signing our names in agreement with the Friends of the Rattlesnake, Wilderness Watch, Alliance for the Wild Rockies and the WildWest Institute in formally filing our opposition to permitting commercial logging in the Rattlesnake National Recreation Area.

We are adamantly opposed to Alternative B, the Proposed Action, and its commercial treatments in Units 2, 3, 4, 5 and 6. We also object to elements of the other alternatives that contain commercial and mechanical methods.

We agree with the letter submitted by Mike Bader that the Forest Service should pull the project, and if desirable, re-boot with a scaled-down, socially-acceptable and scientifically-sound proposal that spreads the treatments out over time.

At a minimum, we would request that the Forest Service prepare a Full Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) pursuant to the
National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA), should it decide to purse Alternative B.

The Forest Service should also be required to
conduct a full-scale watershed effects analysis pursuant to INFISH.

Thank you very much for your consideration of this incredibly important matter.
