Dear Fellow Duner,
Saturday, 12/8, is one of the most important Desert Advisory Council
meetings to date.
The management plan for the Imperial Sand Dunes Recreation Area is on the
fast track and it will be discussed at this DAC meeting. Capacity limits and
curfews are hot topics in the management plan. We must make it clear that
THESE OPTIONS ARE NOT ACCEPTABLE since all other remedies have not yet been
exhausted. Only as a last resort would we be willing to accept them, and
then, only on a temporary as needed basis.
We need as many bodies there as possible. If we show apathy by not
attending in record numbers, the BLM will not take us seriously and continue
to operate as in the past. More importantly, if we do not make more of a
statement than the Environmentalists, they will have a greater influence on
the process than we - that is what got us where we are today.
Additionally, the NECO and NEMO Desert management plans will be discussed at
great length. These plans will be used to manage most of the desert in
