A quick note to friends of public lands )

not a fundraising message

December 21, 2006


We know it's a busy time, but we wanted to pass on some good news to mark the end of a long year.

Thanks to you and all of our cohorts across the country, three very damaging land privatization bills failed to pass at the end of the 109th Congress, and as a result more than 100,000 acres of your public land have been kept in public hands!

In central and southwestern Idaho and southwest Utah, federal lands were slated to be given away or sold off in exchange for wilderness designation elsewhere, but controversy dragged at the proposals and they fell to defeat.

Now, a new Congress means a new opportunity to rededicate ourselves to protecting all public lands. In the meantime, please take a moment to savor this hard-won victory.

We look forward to working with you in the new year!


Happy solstice,

Joanne, Janine, and Chris
