Selling out

To the Editor,

As a sportswoman I am getting very concerned about the continuing efforts of the US Congress to sell or transfer our Federal public lands.

In the last two years there have been several bills that have been advanced and in some cases passed one house of the Congress selling off large portions of Federal lands.

Our National Forests like the Nicolet-Chequamegon in northern Wisconsin and our Federal Wildlife Refuges such as the Horicon Marsh, Meadow Valley and the Upper Mississippi River Refuge are really important to hunters and anglers in the state and provide many other recreational opportunities like camping, hiking and bird watching.

In addition, many people from Wisconsin travel and use the Federal lands in the Western part of our country to hunt, fish, camp and other outdoor activites. It would be a tremendous loss for us and future generations if these lands are sold off.

It is really important for all of us to contact our Federal Representative and US Senators and let them know that they should oppose these efforts to sell or transfer our Federal public lands. Unless they hear from us, we may wake up some day and it will be too late.

Respectfully yours, Lil Pipping
