Action Alert: Support the Northwest California Wilderness, Recreation, and Working Forests Act

 

The Northwest California Wilderness, Recreation, and Working Forests Act, introduced by Congressman Jared Huffman and Vice President Kamala Harris back in 2018, will protect wild public lands and rivers, expand recreational opportunities, improve fire risk management, benefit local economies, and even address trespass cannabis growing. We strongly support the many years of work that our elected officials and countless others have put into making this legislation a reality.

Now that Vice President Harris is no longer in the Senate we are urging her replacement, Senator Alex Padilla, to adopt the bill and support its reintroduction. We also want to take this opportunity to thank Congressman Huffman for his many years of hard work on this bill, and provide him encouragement to keep it up!

Please join us by contacting Senator Padilla
Ask him to adopt the NW CA Wilderness, Recreation, and Working Forests Act and support its reintroduction to congress.

Dear Congressman Huffman,

Thank you so much for your years of work on the Northwest California Wilderness, Recreation, and Working Forests Act. I strongly value protecting our public lands and rivers with Wilderness and Wild & Scenic designations. I support expanding opportunities for recreation, prioritizing fire risk management, and cleaning up trespass cannabis grows on public lands. Thanks again for your excellent work.

Sincerely, [your name]
