No snowmobiles in Blue Mounds State Park! Protect this gem! Act now!

Attention all silent sport and nature enthusiasts! We must ask the WI Natural Resources Board to reconsider their previous Blue Mound State Park Master Plan approval and let them know that you do NOT support creation of snowmobile trails in Blue Mound State Park & rerouting of the existing ski trails. The DNR has stated there is equal support for both snowmobiling and silent sports at Blue Mound State Park, based on previous citizen input, so it is critical that they now hear from us, lovers of human-powered sports, hiking in the peace of the Driftless woods, and a state park free of the dangerous, obnoxious, and shattering shrieks of speeding snowmobiles. Both written comments submitted prior to, and oral testimony presented at the NRB meeting, are needed.  [You need to submit new comments even if have previously submitted them.] Deadline to submit Written Comment is 11:00 a.m. on Friday, January 13, 2017 and the deadline to request to testify is 11:00 a.m. on Friday, January 20, 2017 Please sign this petition AND, if at all possible, request to testify & attend the meeting: Wednesday, January 25, 2017 8:30am Room G09, State Natural Resources Building (GEF 2)101 South Webster StreetMadison, Wisconsin For your comments and signature to be registered and counted the DNR and NRB requires the following: When submitting a written comment, or registering to testify, pleaseprovide the following information to the Board Liaison (Laurie Ross): 1. Name: 2. Representing: Self. 3. Regarding NRB January 2017 meeting agenda item 2.B.9. 4. City or town where you live: 5. Phone number:  6. Address or Email Address:  If you are more comfortable providing this directly and not through this petition, please send your written comments and/or request to testify to: Laurie Ross, NRB Liaison   Or call, 608-267-7420, but email has a trail ;) If you only have a moment, feel free to cut and paste this: I am OPPOSED to the proposed construction of a snowmobile trail (or route) through Blue Mound State Park (BMSP) & I am OPPOSED to the relocation of the Mounds Park Road trail crossing and Planned Multi-Use Trail Alignment. For more information on the history of this issue, how this amendment came to be proposed, and now is being reconsidered, please see: file:///Users/macuser/Downloads/Wade-Heil%20Informational%20Message,%2012-22-2016%20final.pdf Please share this widely and help keep Blue Mounds State Park free from snowmobiles!
