Tell President Obama to Protect the Berryessa Snow Mountain Region!

By: Defenders of Wildlife
Target: President Obama
21,442 SUPPORTERS30,000 GOAL
Stretching nearly 100 miles wide, the region is home to a wide variety of California wildlife, including mountain lions, bears, Tule elk, deer, osprey and elusive Pacific fishers. In addition to wildlife, the region is teeming with blue oak woodlands and red fir forests, unique plants found nowhere else on Earth, and provides countless opportunities for visitors to hike, horseback ride and enjoy the wild outdoors.

But the future of Berryessa Snow Mountain region is not secure.

Metropolitan areas are slowly inching closer to the borders of these wildlands — roads and development will soon threaten to divide this vast expanse and severely limit wildlife movement. Poorly managed recreation could threaten habitat and litter the wild landscape with unregulated off-road vehicles destroying sensitive areas.

Tell President Obama to protect the Berryessa Snow Mountain region and save the wildlife, environment and local businesses that rely on it to survive!

Dear President Obama,

California has a wealth of public lands that are ripe for permanent protection. One of these, the Berryessa Snow Mountain region, is a hidden gem of northern California's wild Inner Coast Ranges and is one of the most biologically diverse yet least known regions of the Golden State. Located less than one hundred miles from the Sacramento and Bay Area metropolitan regions, the area is a dazzling outdoor wonderland rich in unique natural features and loaded with recreational opportunities for residents and visitors alike.

Public lands stretch nearly one hundred miles from the shores of Lake Berryessa in the south to the flanks of Snow Mountain in the north. The Berryessa Snow Mountain region - in the heart of California's global biodiversity hot spot - is rich in unique plants, some of which are found nowhere else on Earth. The region's thriving blue oak woodlands, red fir forests and creekside habitat set the scene for an annual explosion of wildflowers and provide habitat to a wide variety of wildlife, including nearly half of California's dragonfly species, butterflies, Pacific fisher, trout, Tule elk, deer, mountain lions, bears, osprey, and is home to California's second largest population of wintering bald eagles.

The Berryessa Snow Mountain area also provides countless opportunities to hike, horseback ride, hunt, camp, ride motorized vehicles in designated areas, fish, watch birds, enjoy water sports and more. Permanent protection for the Berryessa Snow Mountain region isn't just good for the environment and wildlife; it's also good for the economy. The outdoor recreation industry supports more than 400,000 California jobs and generates $46 billion of economic activity in the Golden State every year. Protecting our special places encourages tourism, supports local businesses and creates desirable places to live and work.

California's Berryessa Snow Mountain region is a national treasure worthy of permanent protection for continued enjoyment today as well as for future generations. Establishment of a national monument will improve coordination between federal agencies, safeguard important areas for climate change adaptation, protect our clean water and provide additional federal funding opportunities for conservation management, invasive species eradication and recreational enhancement.

[Your comments here]

I strongly urge you to permanently protect this region by proclaiming Berryessa Snow Mountain as California's next national monument.

Sincerely,
[Your name]
