BLM, the federal manager of our public lands, recently released its Final Environmental Impact Statement (FEIS) analyzing 65 illegally issued leases in White River National Forest.
And there is really good news: BLM is proposing to cancel 25 of those leases!
Unfortunately, the new plan also abandons important protections for 27 other illegal leases.
These areas are just as ecologically important as the lands where BLM has proposed to cancel leases. They contain pristine wildlife habitat, roadless lands, sensitive fish species, rare plants, unstable and erosive soils.
But the FEIS isn’t a final decision. Now is our last opportunity to influence BLM.
Tell BLM to protect all our public lands that were illegally leased in White River National Forest!
