Here's what this alert is about:
The Forests Need Your Voice!
We need your help again! Thanks to your previous action,
President Clinton is proposing protection for America's last
wild and scenic forests.
If this historic opportunity is to become reality, the Forest
Service needs to hear from you. Hit REPLY and send an email to
the Forest Service right now.
Our forests continue to be threatened by roads and logging trucks.
As expected, the timber industry and their allies in Congress
will be fighting hard to stop this proposal.
From now until December 20th, we have the opportunity to state
loud and clear that our forests need a strong protection policy.
It is up to you to tell the Forest Service about the priceless
value of our National Forests. We've made it easy for you to
help -- all you need to do is hit "Reply" to this email, and the
letter below will be automatically sent to the Forest Service on
For the Forests, For the Future,

-------YOU MAY EDIT THE LETTER BELOW---------
Dear Forest Service:
I applaud President Clinton's announcement that you will be
preparing a roadless area protection policy. I urge you to
protect the 60 million acres of remaining roadless wild lands
in our national forests, which provide excellent recreational
opportunities for millions of Americans, habitat for wildlife,
and clean water for communities.
I urge you to adopt a policy that:
· Accords roadless areas strong, effective protection from all
damaging activities, including logging, mining, and off-road
· Provides immediate and permanent protection for ALL roadless
areas 1000 acres and larger in all national forests, including
the Tongass National Forest in Alaska, and
· Does not defer protection of roadless areas to the forest
We all have a responsibility to protect these roadless, wild
forests. Once they are gone, they are gone forever.
-------END OF LETTER-------------------------
