    UTAH - Public Meetings Scheduled for Emery County Public Land Bill
    Dear BRC members, supporters and action alert subscribers,
    I just received an email from Alan Peterson at Sage Riders Motorcycle Club and the Castle Country OHV Association (CCOHVA), with important information on the Emery County Public Land Bill.
    I've pasted their alert below, so please take a minute to read it over and take action. Then pass this important alert on to your friends and family and ask them take action as well.
    Thanks in advance for your involvement,
    Ric Foster
    Public Lands Department Manager

    Emery County Public Land Users,
    You've had 2 years to participate in this process. For 2 years the Emery County Public Land Council has been gathering information, taking field trips and asking YOU, what do you want as per management of YOUR public land?
    Many of your friends & neighbors have contributed important "ingredients" to the recipe, now it's time for you to take a look at that recipe before it's handed off to the "bakers" in Washington D.C.
    Hopefully you've been involved in this process. If so, THANK YOU!
    If not, may I ask why not?

    Get Involved and Stay Involved......it's YOUR public land.
