Special Bulletin from the IDA

Posted by Lydia on December 14th, 2008

Please read this special bulletin from the IDA website: Call to Action!

A national land auction on December 19th will open 300,000 acres of outstanding scenic quality wilderness lands in Utah, USA to lease for the purpose of natural gas and oil exploration. Imagine how the ceaseless glow from the oil and gas burn-off of these operations would dilute the pristine skies of the Utah parks!

A vital piece of our natural heritage is as stake. Please take action now! Send a letter (see here for a sample letter -LL) to your Senators, Representative, and the Administrator of the U.S. Bureau of Land Management. (See IDA website for information on how to contact your local elected representative. -LL)
