Help make Joshua Tree National Park whole again

Action: Wildlife Conservation

May 22, 2016   Action Alert ID# 377

 

Land that was removed from Joshua Tree National Park in the 1940s for iron mining is now available to be reincorporated into the park. The Park Service has submitted a proposal that contains several scenarios for restoring this land. Help us urge the Park Service to make the best plan for the park's plants and animals -- a plan that combines two alternatives set forth in the proposal.

Alternative C from the Park Service's proposal is beneficial because it outlines the immediate reincorporation of 22,515 acres of BLM-managed lands back into the park. However, the Park Service needs to include Alternative D's long-term vision of repatriating all the remaining 6,085 acres of state and private lands as they become available for acquisition. Only this hybrid alternative will successfully return Joshua Tree National Park to its former 1936 boundary as quickly as possible.

Tell the Park Service to combine Alternatives C and D to immediately reincorporate 22,515 acres and also set the long-term goal of reincorporating all remaining lands that were temporarily cut out of the park, returning it to its original boundary.
