(CA) Sand Mountain Butterfly
« on: Apr 30, 2004, 12:01:01 PM »
The petition filed last week by a coalition of environmental organizations to put a butterfly found at Sand Mountain on the Endangered Species List has ratcheted the discussion of off-road use at the popular recreation area up a notch.

The position staked out by the Center for Biological Diversity and other environmental groups behind the effort is hopefully not one of non-negotiation. :lol: But clearly a line has been drawn in the sand.

Environmentalists claim the voluntary measures the BLM has outlined to date to protect the blue butterfly, namely cautionary signs warning of fragile habitat, are ineffective and ignored. Off-roaders believe education rather than regulation on vehicle use at Sand Mountain is the way to proceed.
