Roadless Area Conservation Act of 2007

Did you know that grizzly bears, wolverines, lynx, woodland caribou, wolves, and thousands of plants and other wildlife species rely on undisturbed habitat in America's National Forests? Unfortunately, the Bush-Cheney Administration has enacted policies that favor road construction, logging and energy development, which are threatening the forest homes of these and other creatures.
I just sent a message to my Representative and Senators to help save roadless areas in our National Forests, and you can, too. Just take action online at:
The National Forest System encompasses 191 million acres of U.S. forest and grassland landscape. These American forest lands filter water, remove air pollution, provide recreational opportunities and harbor much of the nation's biological diversity.
A bipartisan group of more than 150 members of the House and Senate have joined together in support of the Roadless Area Conservation Act of 2007 (H.R. 2516 & S.1478), legislation to protect 58.5 million acres of wild national forest land.
Urge your lawmakers to support this important legislation. Take action online now at:
Thanks for helping!
