Please make the calls to FIGHT this !!

Last Monday on January 7, 2001 several staffers from California's
Senator
Dianne Feinstein's office collaborated with Paul Spitler the Executive
Director of the California Wilderness Coalition and Eldon Hughes of the
Sierra Club.

These folks personally filled a couple of BLM vehicles, driven by BLM
staff
to visit, and begin the process of designating the listed WSA's to
become
Wilderness. Mr. Spitler mentioned at the National Trails Symposium held
in
Redding, Calif (Sept. 2000) , that 14,000,000 acres of Wilderness in
California is not enough. He further stated that an additional
7,000,000
acres is needed.

1) D.V. (Death Valley) 17 commonly called the "Bowling Alley"---17,280
acres.
2) Avawatz Mts.-------61,320 acres
3) South Avawatz Mts. ---23,259 acres
4) Soda Mts.-----80,430 acres
5) Kingston Range --------- 39,750
6) Cady Mts.--------- 84,000 acres (this WSA is not related to thje Ft.
Irwin
expansion)

Total acres---306,430

What needs to be done. Please give a call to Congressman Jerry Lewis's
office
and ask him what's his involvement is, and if he is aware of this back
door
dealing involving his 40th Congressional District.
Give his local office a call. (909) 862-6030 and/or his DC office a
call at
(202) 225-5861

Give Feinstein a call at (415) 393-0707 and/or her DC office a call at
(202)

Lets these folks know that your totally opposed to these areas becoming
Wilderness.
