    Big Changes in Store for White Wash Sand Dunes!

    The preliminary draft management plan for the popular White Wash Sand Dune area has been posted on BLM's website. The plan contemplates severe restrictions on camping, a fee program and restrictions one would expect to find in areas where endangered species ARE found.
    Indeed, proposed management requires fencing all cottonwood trees and all areas where standing water can be found! -- Can you imagine?

    Now, even though there really is no "rare subspecies" of Cottonwood tree, we propose that there must be, in light of the actions that are being considered! Although extensive genetic testing shows absoloutly no difference between a Normal Cottonwood and an Endangered Cottonwood, we have figured out how the BLM is telling them apart...

    What could be the reason behind wanting to fence around the cottonwoods at white wash and nowhere else in the world apart from there actually being a rare subspecies? Maybe they really aren't trying to "protect" anything at all. Their whole agenda seems to be to shut down as much land as they can to the public. Since they couldn't find anything that actually was endangered at White Wash, they had to do their best to fabricate something. Of course this isn't all BLM's fault. Super radical organizations such as SUWA are gaining strength and pushing their crap wherever they can. Does it seem wrong to anyone else that people who choose to ride ohv's at White Wash may no longer be able to enjoy the shade of a cottonwood tree, or search for tadpoles in a pool of water, while the rest of the world of humans and animals can? This is only the beginning, Suwa wants all areas such as this shut down to all humans, and they won't stop until all our freedoms to use these areas are gone.
