PLANS TO EXPAND TORTOISE MANAGEMENT AREA CONTINUE!!

All sportsmen and users of public lands in Clark County need to be aware that the attempt to close substantial areas in both the northern and southern parts of the county are continu­ing. Environmental activists and animal rights groups are persisting in the attempt to persuade the U.S. Forest Service and BLM that the tortoise should be given priority over people when it comes to access to public lands. (Sadly, these agencies seem to need very little convincing in that restricting access to land has been a primary goal for years.)

Fortunately the federal law provides that local governments (county and state) can play a major role in determin­ing use of federally protected lands if

they (the local governments) will pro­pose their own management plan. Up until this point, however, very little has been done in this regard.

It would be helpful if we, as land users, would contact our county commis­sioners and protest the further closure of our county for tortoise habitat and request that our county government take a more proactive role in controlling the federal government's ongoing attempt to exclude its citizens from access to feder­al lands.

The time to act is NOW!
