Trespass damage at Red Rock Canyon SPWhile on patrol on June 11th, State Parks Law Enforcement discovered a significant amount of 4X4 off-road damage at the north end of Nightmare Gulch in Red Rock Canyon State Park. It appears that a group of unknown off-roaders blazed their own path to follow the boundary fence line and find its weak spots. They were successful, and entered Nightmare Gulch during the birds of prey nesting closure.

b2ap3_thumbnail_Sage-Grouse_fund.jpgThe Spotted Owl of decades past pretty much shut down logging and closed thousands of miles of trails and roads in the Pacific Northwest.  Now, the sage grouse is trying to do that to 47 million acres across 11 western states.  Some like Carolyn Dufurrena reporting for Range Magazine (Spring 2014 issue) say it’s not about habitat or the birds themselves or wildfire or invasive species or anything like that.  She reports that it’s about money and politics, as well as control of the land, public and private.  Whatever your take is on this bird, it cannot be ignored and we have to do something about it or we will lose access to the unnecessary listing and protection of this critter.

These are Open House events – drop by anytime, and stay as long as you’d like!
