Target: Representative Scott Tipton
Action: Call Representative Tipton at (970) 241-2499 (Grand Junction Office) or (202) 225-4761 (D.C. office) and ask him to continue his support of wilderness by opposing HR 1349.
I am calling to ask Congressman Tipton to oppose H.R. 1349 which would remove protections for Wilderness Areas by allowing numerous forms of mechanized travel in designated wilderness.
85% of public lands in Colorado are available for mountain biking. Opening up wilderness areas to bikes is not necessary and would only cause tremendous ecological harm and significant management challenges.
Thank you for your past work to protect wilderness in the Hermosa Creek watershed. I am counting on you to continue your support of wilderness by opposing HR 1349 and any other legislation that would modify or undermine the Wilderness Act.
