Siskiyou Crest National Monument: Stop Siskiyou Land Grab Coalition sponsors community Forum February 5th at 10 a.m
By Ornate Frates

Stop Siskiyou Land Grab is a community based coalition dedicated to stopping the Siskiyou Crest National Monument.  This is our backyard.  Our property values are at stake, as well as our usage and access rights.

As residents of this region, we are well aware the SiskiyouCrest is an environmental gem.  We wholeheartedly support sound environmental stewardship, where all constituencies can have a seat at the table.  A national monument designation by the President is a sloppy executive order style creation.  In previous cases, monument designations have failed to fully reflect local community interests.  Sadly, environmental advocacy groups approach the subject from an ideological perspective above all else, often distorting the historical record on the impacts to property value and access and usage rights.

Community Forum:

Join us February 5th at 10 a.m.

Location:  Applegate Community Church at the intersection of North Applegate Road and Highway 238 (18960 North Applegate Road).
