    On April 16, California Representatives David G. Valadao (CA-21), Sam Farr (CA-21), and Jeff Denham (CA-10) introduced H.R. 1838, the Clear Creek National Recreation Area and Conservation Act, to direct the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) to reopen the 75,000 acre Clear Creek Management Area in San Benito and Fresno counties for recreational use, including access for off-road vehicles. Additionally, the legislation would protect approximately 21,000 acres of BLM land adjacent to Clear Creek as the Joaquin Rocks Wilderness.
    BRC is asking OHV recreationists, businesses, conservation groups, environmental organizations, clubs, and local government to express your strong support for H.R. 1838. Dirt Rider Magazine once listed Clear Creek as one of the top ten OHV riding areas in the country. The congressional representatives listed below should be commended for their hard work in crafting this comprehensive bi-partisan legislation.

    Seems like a MASSIVE mistake to close 21,000 acres as wilderness in a trade for an off road park. Consider that land GONE, never to be seen again by anybody but hikers.

    Having done a decade of fighting for snowmobile land use rights, I would never ever ever support further closures, even to get something else opened back up. JMHO
