This only takes a couple of minutes and we all know that the more riding areas that are closed the easier it is to close the next one.
Sign a Petition to the White House in Opposition to a Base Expansion that Would Seriously Limit OHV Access in Johnson Valley
Please click here to sign a petition to the White House in opposition to a Marine Corps base expansion that that would seriously restrict OHV access to Johnson Valley.
Johnson Valley, a very popular OHV area in California, is in jeopardy. The Marine Corps is seeking to expand the neighboring 29 Palms facility and acquire most of the OHV area for use in training exercises. The Marines would only need the extra space for less than 30 days a year, but if they use the area for live-fire training as envisioned, the area will be forever closed to OHV recreation. Click here to sign a petition to the White House opposing a takeover of the area.
The President has pledged to respond to any White House petition that gets at least 25,000 signatures. As this alert was being written more than 8,000 people have signed the petition – and the effort just started on January 15th!
While Johnson Valley is in California, it is important that everyone weigh in to help ensure that this important riding area is not lost. Tomorrow it may be OHV access in your state that is being threatened.
Please click here to sign the petition before February 15th!
