Your nationwide public lands roads and trails access are in jeopardy.
Your federally produced maps removing our public roads and trails are at stake. It is estimated
that 30% of our public lands access roads/trails are currently unperfected prescriptive at this time.
The culture of fear for our federal employees that manage our public lands and resources,
their removal or hamstringing is increasing.

If our Public Trust stewards are prevented from doing their jobs by privatizing forces,
how will the public's resources, lands and access
be maintained and protected for future generations?

  • The Sessions, Daines, Stockgrowers and MT Farm Bureau Letters show the demands to end the prescriptive easement process natiionwide, as well as ending the printing of these roads/trails on future maps.
  • The public hunter letters reveal that Daines did not respond or would not get involved, yet when reached out to by certain privatizing landowners in the Crazy Mountains National Forest, he not only got involved, he elevated false allegations that he did not do due diligence in investigating first, before elevating to the highest levels of the Forest Service and USDA.

Have you been in the Crazy Mountains?

If you have been in the Crazy Mountains...

  • perhaps you received a citation when you were on a FS Trail on their map;
  • perhaps you have been on one of these contested trail and you thankfully did not ask landowner permission or sign in and would like to add your account to the prescriptive easement history;
  • perhaps you would just like to share your story and/or some pictures of what these particular public lands and access mean to you?

If so, please contact Kathryn :

I beg you to show the same level of defense for our public access and Alex Sankiewicz's reinstatement as Yellowstone District Ranger, by raising your concerns to the same officials that the privatizers just did with false allegations. Because when you see the roll out of information to come and the players agendas, you will agree, this isn't just about one man and his job, it is about what he was doing as a steward of our public lands that others greedily desire for their own.
