How You Can Make A Difference
You ever think that anything you join really has an impact on the things that you care about? Well joining Stewards of the Sequoia does!!!
Why you ask? What does my membership do?
It does two very important things.
First, it provides the financial resources for Stewards of the Sequoia to be a stakeholder in land use planning and educate policymakers about Multiple Use, recreation for everyone, supporting local economies and helping improve and protect the environment.
Your support helps Stewards maintain Stakeholder status to ensure that recreation is not marginalized in Forest and BLM Planning.
Everyone from the Rock Climbers, Hunters & Fisherman using SUV’s & ATV’s, Horse Riders using their SUV/trailer to access riding areas, Trail Bike riders & 4WD enthusiasts, Mountain Bikers in their SUV, to the Sunday family SUV adventurer that comes out for a nature drive, are part of the Multiple Use community. We all use roads and vehicles on public lands. That is who we are, a diverse group of outdoor recreationists, who wish to share the roads and trails with everyone.
  • We provide funding through user pay programs like the Green Sticker fund to maintain trails, provide enforcement and do environmental work.
  • We are the ones volunteering to maintain the roads and trails so they can continue to be enjoyed by everyone.
  • We volunteer in self patrolling areas for people to educate people on how to be good stewards of their public lands, so those areas are available for our kids to enjoy in the future.
  • It is not the radical environmentalists out there doing this, but members of the Multiple Use Community.
Second, by being a part of a group that represents Multiple Use recreation, you provide us with the political leverage that we will need to impress upon our local, state and federal officials, the width and range of the Multiple Use Community. They need to understand we want continued access to our public lands and are organizing to make our voice heard.
We are the moderates and we are the majority in California and probably the nation.
Nations, buildings, and organizations are begun with just one person starting the process and you are that one person. Take the time to really evaluate what is important to you and realize that being part of Stewards of the Sequoia will make a difference in Sequoia National Forest keeping the public lands open for all. Stewards also reaches out to other areas in California as well as elsewhere, to help keep them open. Supporting other areas & those areas supporting us greatly enhances our abilities to keep our trails open everywhere. This forest, state & nation are big enough for us all to enjoy the great recreation opportunities, and we are the grass roots organization that starts with you. Your support will make the difference. As always your donations go directly to keeping trails open. We have no paid staff. All our efforts are volunteered.
Thanks for all you do, enjoy our great outdoors and all its natural wonders, and join Stewards of the Sequoia to ensure you have a say in the lands that you and all the public owns.
