Friends of the Rubicon
FOR is dedicated to preserving the United States' most famous 4x4 trail. Trail Boss Jacquelyne Theisen writes, "Friends of the Rubicon will put over 10,000 volunteer labor hours into the Rubicon Trail over the next two years installing drainage structures, hardening loose soil areas, installing signs, and [doing] a few other trail projects in an effort to comply with the Central Valley Regional Water Quality Boards Clean-Up and Abatement Order." In other words, 50 years of deferred maintenance must be accomplished in two years; Work Day help is sorely needed.

MUIRNet is monitoring the Southern California forest lawsuits of the Center for Biological Diversity (CBD) and the West Mojave Management Plan (WEMO). "CBD is also promoting increased wilderness and critical habitat designation, which exclude motorized recreation," writes 4x4Wire.com Managing Editor John Stewart. "CBD is a participant in the Forest Service water-quality management planning, seeking tough restrictions on access to National Forests."
