Everyone go sign this:
Johnson Valley OHV area will be CLOSED without our voice, that much is a fact. If you're not familiar with this area, it's where King of the Hammers takes place every year, and where countless people take their family and vehicles to enjoy the outdoors and to wheel.
Share this image. Share this link with it (above). EVERYONE should be on board for something this easy.
Save The Hammers.
WE PETITION THE OBAMA ADMINISTRATION TO:
Save the Johnson Valley OHV Area. Be fiscally responsible. Stop 29 Palms Marine base expansion. Keep public lands open.
With utmost respect for our nation’s military and national defense, we request our government deny any request by the US Marines to acquire 140K acres of public land designated for OHV use in Johnson Valley, CA for the purpose of expanding the 29 Palms Marine base. Expanding the world’s largest Marine base will cost tax payers millions and the Marines have publicly stated the land is only needed 2 months a year. Economic reports show neighboring communities and small businesses could lose $100 Million annually due to base expansion. The Marines current expansion plan is unnecessary and fiscally irresponsible. We request our government encourage the Marines to work with the public and obtain permits from the BLM to meet training objectives instead of closing this land to the public forever.
