Public Land for Public Use Protest Rally
About 14 million acres in California, roughly 14 percent of its total land base, is already designated wilderness, off-limits to motorized vehicles, bicycles, horse-back riding, grazing, logging, mining, oil drilling and other forms of commercial development. Boxer wants to add another 2.5 million acres to that! We're going to speak up and be heard.

What
A gathering of multiple use advocates to protest
Senator Boxer's Wilderness Act of 2002 and
the continual closure of public land for multiple use

When
Thursday July 11, 2002

Where
Senator Boxer's offices in:
Sacramento, Los Angeles, San Diego, Fresno, San Bernardino & San Francisco

Our Message
* Oppose Senator Boxer's Wilderness Bill *
* Reform the Endangered Species Act *

Sacramento: We will be meeting at a location near the capitol at 11:00 AM. We will depart for the Sacramento Capitol at 12:00 Noon sharp and proceed to circle the Capitol in a very slow manner. After circling the Capitol, we will drive to Senator Boxer's office to hand over the petition to oppose more Wilderness Area designations. Check back soon to find exact meeting location.

What to drive: Wilderness Area designation excludes mechanical access, so it would be best to bring your 4x4's, mountain bikes, or even tow a trailer with motorcycles & ATV's. We will drive slow enough so the bikes will easily be able to keep up

Please bring your family. We want to show the general public that families loose when access to public land for recreational purposes is denied.

Signs and banners are encouraged, but please keep them clean.
