SUBJECT: Holiday Cards for the Chief

Whether you celebrate Christmas, Hanukkah, Kwaanza, the New Year, or the
druidic calendar, please take the time to send Forest Service Chief
Michael Dombeck a holiday card.

We're serious.   Right now, the Clinton Administration is pondering a
very important decision affecting our National Forests.

They are considering a plan that could end logging and new road
building in forest areas that don't have logging roads yet.  This is very
important because it would help protect many of our National Forests'
most significant remaining natural habitats, safeguard potential new
wilderness areas, and stop damage to many pristine forest streams.   A
strong nation-wide roadless policy  is a possible outcome of the current
deliberations inside the Forest Service.  Never before has a Chief of the
Forest Service dare raised the specter of  protecting roadless areas
nation-wide.  Chief Dombeck should be encouraged in his current
endeavor to adopt the strongest policy.

In your holiday card to Chief Dombeck, please ask him to protect all
roadless areas over 1,000 acres from new roadbuilding and logging.
Also ask him not to exclude any forests -- particularly those in Alaska
and the Pacific Northwest from these important protections (FYI --
opponents to the roadless policy are pushing for exemptions in these
areas, not unlike the Grinch who stole the Who's Christmas Tree).

You can give a gift back to the earth this holiday season by sending a
Holiday Card to Chief Dombeck --- its fun for the whole family,
especially the children.   Tell your friends, relatives, colleagues, and
members of your community to join in the fun.

Oh,  don't forget to wish the Chief a Happy Holiday and successful
Roadless New Year.
