Icon14,385 people have signed our petition so far -- show you care about protecting our last wild national forests! Sign today!

On May 13, the Bush administration repealed the widely supported
Roadless Area Conservation Rule, opening nearly sixty million acres of
America's last wild national forests to logging, road construction,
mining, oil exploration, and other forms of development.

Hikers, fishermen, hunters, and millions of other Americans
considered the 2001 Roadless Rule one of the greatest forest
conservation measures in U.S. history. Now, conservation-minded
Americans throughout the country are joining together to file an
official petition with the Bush administration demanding reinstatement
of the original Roadless Rule.

The petition declares that:

  • America's last roadless national forests belong to all Americans.

  • All of our remaining roadless areas should be protected,
    completely and permanently, through the reinstatement of the Roadless
    Area Conservation Rule of 2001.

Please sign your name today! The conservation community wants to
collect half a million signatures to present to President Bush and the
Department of Agriculture on the fifth anniversary of the signing of
the Roadless Rule – January 12, 2006.

Go here to sign!

Protect places like Yosemite from being ruined forever!
