NFC: Fw: Your Calls Needed To Protect Outstanding Rivers!
HELP PROTECT OUTSTANDING RIVERS, SALMON, AND RARE PLANTS IN
WE NEED YOUR HELP NOW! Please call Secretary of the Interior Bruce
Babbitt and urge him to ask President Clinton to declare a Siskiyou
Wild Rivers National Monument under the Antiquities Act. President
Clinton has only two weeks to proclaim a Siskiyou Wild Rivers
National Monument before he leaves office. Please help ensure that we
do not lose this great opportunity. The Siskiyou Wild Rivers National
Monument would be the nation's first monument dedicated to protecting
wild free flowing rivers and wild salmon and steelhead. The one
million-acre proposed National Monument in southwest Oregon's famed
Siskiyou Mountains is home to all or parts of the watersheds of five
wild and scenic rivers and nine wild and scenic river candidate
rivers. The monument declaration is needed to prevent unchecked
mining and logging from harming sensitive habitats.
Please call and ask Secretary Babbitt him to ask the President to
create a 1 million-acre Siskiyou Wild Rivers National Monument. We
are on the brink of success in this effort, and your call could
really make a difference!
