You can help Utah’s Zion-Mojave region by sending a statement of support to Secretary of the Interior Gale Norton. The Bureau of Land Management, overseen by Secretary Norton and the Department of the Interior, has the legal responsibility to create plans for motorized travel on public lands that will prevent wilderness-quality lands from being degraded forever. This is particularly important for the protection of the wild Zion-Mojave, given the rampant growth in Off-Road Vehicle use inthe region.
The Bureau of Land Management is long overdue in issuing a travel plan for the Zion-Mojave proposed wilderness. Citizens of Utah have recognized this gross mismanagement of the land, and have thus prepared the Virgin River Heritage Plan. The Virgin River Heritage Plan aims to create a sustainable route designation plan for the lands of the Zion-Mojave, solving user conflicts and ensuring that environmental protections are appropriately applied.
Ask Secretary Norton to create a balanced and fair recreation and Off-Road Vehicle plan for the Zion-Mojave, following the guidance of the Virgin River Heritage Plan, that will protect the area’s scenic, recreation, wildlife, and archaeological values from Off-Road Vehicle damage.
