Please sign and share, save OUR public lands, it does not matter where you live.

The link below is for a petition to help save Johnson Valley OHV (where King of the Hammers is raced). We need a minimum of 25,000 signatures to force the administration to publicly address this issue. You will have to "create an account" (email, name, ZIP). It's fast and easy. Please get involved.

We petition the Obama administration to:

Save the Johnson Valley OHV Area. Be fiscally responsible. Stop 29 Palms Marine base expansion. Keep public lands open.

With utmost respect for our nation’s military and national defense, we request our government deny any request by the US Marines to acquire 140K acres of public land designated for OHV use in Johnson Valley, CA for the purpose of expanding the 29 Palms Marine base. Expanding the world’s largest Marine base will cost tax payers millions and the Marines have publicly stated the land is only needed 2 months a year. Economic reports show neighboring communities and small businesses could lose $100 Million annually due to base expansion. The Marines current expansion plan is unnecessary and fiscally irresponsible. We request our government encourage the Marines to work with the public and obtain permits from the BLM to meet training objectives instead of closing this land to the public forever.

I hope those 85 views went and looked at the petition, and hopefully some signed it. No replys from this forum saddens me. I agree with the petition and signed it. Please we have 2 days left and need 5,000 signatures, this forum could help out big time.
