NFC: Fw: Forest Service moves to allow destructive mining in Oregon's Siskiyou Region

You can give the public a chance to be heard on the future of the 

Forest Service Chief Dale Bosworth requested that Secretary of 
Interior Gale Norton terminate the mineral withdrawal proposed by 
former Secretary Babbitt, for the Forest Service section of the 
Siskiyou Wild Rivers area (over 800,000 acres). 

If Norton terminates the mineral withdrawal, the Siskiyou Wild Rivers 
lands will again be open to mineral exploration and new claims will 
be staked.  Also, the public will be robbed of our opportunity to 
engage in a process that can let our voices be heard in our efforts 
to protect the Siskiyou Wild Rivers from mining.

There are two ways you can help. 

If you are from Oregon, it is especially important that Senators 
Wyden and Smith hear from you. Please send an Autofax to Senators 
Wyden and Smith, Forest Service Chief Bosworth and Secretary of 
Interior Gale Norton from www.siskiyourivers.org/action. 

To learn more about the issue, or to just send an email to Norton and 
Bosworth from American Rivers' take action center, visit 
and select "Siskiyou Wild Rivers..."
