Author: teddygirl | Sunday March 08, 2009
The following is from the National Parks Conservation Association, an organization is protecting parks for future generations.
NPCA rang in the New Year with the passage of the Omnibus Public Land Management Act of 2009 in the Senate on January 15. This passage marks real progress for our national parks, but needs support in the House to become a reality.
This Act is a compilation of public lands bills, including several that are important for the protection and interpretation of America's National Park System. Examples of the provisions include:
The addition of the Barrett Farm to Minute Man National Historical Park in Massachusetts.
The expansion of the boundary at Little River Canyon National Preserve in Alabama.
The establishment of a commemorative trail connected to Women's Rights National Historical Park in New York.
The expansion of the boundary at Fort Davis National Historic Site in Texas.
An act to designate as wilderness the landscape within Rocky Mountain National Park in Colorado.
NPCA considers this a significant bill to protect America's priceless heritage, and looks forward to its passage in the House of Representatives.
