On February 1, SORA made a presentation to the Board of County Commissioners on the proposed expansion of the Wild Rogue Wilderness, and requested the BCC to pass a resolution opposing any further wilderness expansion in our county.
BCC Chair Simon Hare wanted to wait until the BCC had heard the other side before taking a vote on whether to pass the resolution.
This Wednesday, March 7, at 9:00 AM, the environmentalists are going to make a presentation to the BCC, titled Protecting the Wild Rogue for Future Generations and the Economy. Immediately following the presentation, the BCC will vote on whether to pass the resolution opposing Wilderness expansion.
We need to make a strong showing in opposition to the Wilderenss expansion. The environmental activists are going to try to pack the house with Wilderness advocates. Please be there, if at all possible.
