Please Sign this Petition

The DEP has agreed to hold Stakeholder forums and a public meeting on the M.A.P.; however, we are gravely concerned with their approach. Instead of following through with their commitment to truly work with the stakeholders, they are instead starting with the M.A.P., and asking the stakeholders to defend their needs to the DEP.  Please sign and share this petition to help assure a fair stakeholder and public forum session.

We need your help!

The DEP has indicated that many of the roads that were closed by the Motorized Access Plan (M.A.P) were either damaged or not really roads, however, we know this is not true

We need your help documenting roads that are proposed to be closed but that are clear, and undamaged.   Head out out to your favorite kayaking spot, hunting spot or the road you used to ride down just to get away from it all, but is now proposed to be closed to motor vehicles.  Not sure where to go?  We can help.

Please see this article on how you can help us document good roads We have made it easy! All the information you need is there and you can do it while your out and about in the forest this weekend.

This information can also be found in our menu at the top of the page.
