Extractions: GETTING INVOLVED AND MAKING A DIFFERENCE By Ron Schiller , High Desert Multiple Use Coalition; with some notes by Del Albright , Moderator, Land Use Network The purpose of this article is to give you a shortcut overview of how to get involved in the management of your public lands. It will also tell you how to have "standing" in legal actions and be a key participant in what happens to your favorite recreation area. By no means can everything about public input be covered in one short article; but you'll find most everything you need here to get started and be effective. Remember: public lands are your lands. You have the right to be included in the actions taken to manage your land. The public process as mandated by the National Environmental Policy Act of 1969, the Federal Land Policy and Management Act of 1976, and other laws require all federal agencies to solicit and consider public input during the development of management plans, programs, regulations and other actions. To fully participate in the public process, the first step is to notify the appropriate agency of your interest in becoming involved. This should be in the form of a letter requesting that your name and address be place on the mailing list for all information regarding the management of public land under that agency's jurisdiction. In most cases, one should specify the extent or range of information desired. In other words, if you are only interested in receiving documents that relate to access to public lands for recreational activities (or road closures) and do not care to review cattle grazing allotment plans, mining proposals, timber sales, or other such activities; your letter should state so. But be careful here as sometimes timber sales, for example, include road closures and re-routes.
Rincon, Puerto Rico Recreational Activities Vacation Information Guide to Rincon Puerto Rico recreational activities in Rincon PR. Mountain Biking. Mountain bikes can be rented locally which turns onto a dirt road alongside the beach http://rincon-puertorico.com/activities.html
Extractions: Rincon has long been known for some of the best surfing in the Caribbean. The regular surf season usually lasts from November thru March. This "winter" surf season is dependent on the low-pressure systems and cold fronts that come off the U.S. East Coast. There are the occasional surf swells during the late summer months of August thru October; these isolated swells come from the tropical weather patterns generated off the coast of Africa, during the peak of hurricane season. If you are interested in learning how to surf, there are lessons available with experienced surfers who also supply the boards. Surfboards and body boards can be rented from the local surf shops in town. The local dive operators also run trips for snorkelers. Desecheo and Mona also have excellent snorkeling. One of the best places to snorkel in Rincon is Steps Beach. A "proposed marine reserve" (not yet official), the area around Steps Beach is home to one of the best coral fringing reefs in the Caribbean, because it is home to the Elkhorn Coral (Arcopora palmata) which is highly threatened worldwide and on it's way to becoming an endangered species. When snorkeling in the area, please do not touch, bump, break, take or walk on the corals. Besides being harmful to the coral, you may get seriously cut and scraped up. Also, state and federal law prohibits the taking of corals.

Extractions: Travel in the United States Millions of Americans travel in pursuit of their sport and recreational interest. Travel by Americans increased by an enormous 45 percent between 1985 and 1995 (Wellner, 1997). Travel has been increasing because of the growth in the population, education level rising and expansion of the economy. The population increase cause more travel because of the obvious reason that there are more people to go to different places. The rising level of education causes more travel because the population learns there are many places that seem like a nice place to visit. The last reason for the increase in travel due to economic growth is because the more the population has to spend the more they will go on vacations. There were 1.2 billion personal trips taken by Americans in 1995 (Wellner, 1997). Personal Watercraft The use of personal watercraft such as wave runners and jet skis have grown a lot since the late seventies to the millennium. Nearly 5 percent of Americans rode a personal watercraft at least once in the past 12 months (Wellner, 1997). The riding of jet skis and wave runners are definitely more popular with young adults. This recreational activity is growing fast and is the future of water sports. Personal watercraft riding seems to be more popular for the upper or middle class of America. Fully 10 percent of those in households with incomes of $100,000 or more have done so (Wellner, 1997).

They advocate that water crossings should not be ridden if they are causing erosion, to stay on open trails only, and to leave as little evidence as possible of your presence.

Extractions: 954-731-7200 (Voice) 954-731-7208 (TTY) NOISE: Double Trouble Recreational Noise You should know Noise levels at video arcades can be as high as 110 dBA. Firecrackers create sound levels ranging from 125 - 155 dBA at an average distance of 10 feet and pose a serious hazard to hearing. Sound levels at live music concerts can be measured at 120 dBA and beyond. Sitting closer to the speakers will create an even greater risk. Dance clubs, personal headsets and audio systems from car stereos are also measured at these dangerous levels. The noise level of gunshots can be measured at 150 dBA. Hearing loss can result from just a few shots of a high powered gun, if appropriate hearing protection is not worn. It is estimated that 50 million Americans who own and use firearms for competitive and recreational shooting are considered at risk for noise-induced hearing loss. Sports such as speed boating, auto racing, snowmobiling can pose a risk for both operators and spectators.

RECREATIONAL DEVELOPMENT Honda and Yamaha market dirt bikes, ATVs, and SUVs driving through term given to largescale, privately provided development-intensive recreational activities. http://www.americanlands.org/forestweb/recreational_development.htm
Extractions: Development on Public Lands For many Americans, public lands recreation means hiking, canoeing, or fishing in their local National Forest. For the last hundred years, most recreation on public lands has been relatively un-commercial and non-motorized. Hunting, fishing, hiking, canoeing, and bird watching do not require heavy infrastructure, and usually have minor ecological impacts. Today, however, large corporations are marketing recreation on public lands as a product, and causing large-scale damage to public lands in the process. Multinational corporations such as Intrawest seek to expand ski resorts into sensitive wildlife habitat to sell nearby real estate. Honda and Yamaha market dirt bikes, ATVs, and SUVs driving through wetlands and streams, encouraging irresponsible and ecologically destructive use. From these high-impact activities, natural quiet and solitude are being lost, wildlife habitat is being destroyed, sensitive soils are being eroded, and the millions of Americans who treasure our public lands for their beauty and quiet are being cheated out of their heritage.
