NRC South Report - September 2011

NRC South Report - September 2011

The California Motorized Recreation Council (CAMRC) a non-profit association comprised of the leadership of the largest Off Highway Vehicle recreation organizations in California met with members of the 29 Palms Marines base expansion committee to engage in a status update regarding the draft Environmental Impact Study (EIS). The CAMRC invited a number of relevant organization that are not currently CAMRC members in an effort to reach the largest audience and provide a well rounded direction to discussions regarding the Marine Corps base expansion efforts.

NRC South Report - July 2011

NRC South Report - July 2011

July has been consumed with two issues: SoCal Roadless Collaborative Team and the USFS Water Quality Management Plan.

After two conference calls (July 28 and August 1) of about 4 hours each plus numerous other calls between, the tenor of the discussion has been changed.  Theatrics from a false report claiming OHV Intervenors had signed off on a “hit list” provided a slight disruption in on-going discussions.  The USFS is looking to complete the collaborative process by August 3, 2011.

NRC South Report - May 2011

NRC South Report - May 2011

After a couple of years hiatus, the Raven Management Environmental Assessment has become an action item.  To put it in perspective, several years ago, raven predation was pin-pointed as a major issue impacting the desert tortoise recovery efforts.  An EA was developed that addressed raven management options and a Raven Working Group was established.  I was selected to be the recreation representative on that working group.

The raven management will be funded by collecting a “mitigation fee” from permitted projects within the BLM California Desert District.
