Keep Off-Road Traffic Out of Kaibab Plateau

Preserving natural areas of our country for their beauty, scenery, peace, and tranquility is essential to protecting wildlife, some of whom are endangered. Adding off-road vehicles to these natural areas insults both the land and her inhabitants. The U.S. Forest Service is considering plans to allow such vehicles on the Kaibab Plateau. By allowing off-road vehicles access to the Kaibab Plateau, sensitive species, like the northern goshawk, the endangered California condor, and the Kaibab squirrel and their habitats, will be impacted.

Furthermore, there will be costs to taxpayers to maintain these roads and to mitigate against the effects of noise, air, and water pollution. If these areas are maintained in their current state, taxpayers will incur no such additional cost, and tourists will continue to enjoy the natural beauty of the Kaibab Plateau.

Please let the Forest Service know that such vehicles do not belong on the Kaibab Plateau.
