Join the Citizen Petition to Preserve our National Forests

From the New Mexico Wilderness Alliance:
Join millions of Americans who've shown their support for the Roadless Rule — sign the Roadless Petition today! Help stop federal plans favoring logging and mining in the last pristine areas of our national forests, including 1.6 million acres in New Mexico!

When you sign, you'll be telling the Bush Administration to reinstate the 2001 Roadless Area Conservation Rule, which it repealed in May, 2005 in spite of an earlier pledge to uphold the rule.

Your voice will help ensure that areas like the Pecos and Gila National Forest in New Mexico stay roadless, and that other wild National Forests across America also stay protected for future generations to come. SIGN the Citizen's Petition TODAY here!

What's At Stake:

More than 58.5 million acres of roadless National Forests are on the chopping block, including 1.6 million acres right here in New Mexico!
