Berryessa Snow Mountain National Conservation Area Act introduced in the U.S. House of Representatives
Law would create a new National Conservation Area in Yolo, Lake, Napa and Mendocino Counties in California.Lets support the Berryessa Snow Mountain National Conservation Area Act (HR 5545) introduced in the U.S. House of Representatives in May by U.S. Rep. Mike Thompson, U.S. Rep. John Garamendi and U.S. Rep. Lynn Woolsey. This would provide National Conservation Area status for the federal lands from Lake Berryessa to Snow Mountain, tying together the Cedar Roughs Wildlife Area, Cache Creek Wildlife Area and Snow Mountain Wilderness areas. The act will bring together the three federal landowners in the area – the Mendocino National Forest, Bureau of Land Management and Bureau of Reclamation – to coordinate management of 319,300 acres of federal land. Pia Lopez kayaked the Cache Creek Wilderness Run to experience some of the area that would be protected in this proposed National Conservation Area.
