“The inclusion of this land [which the gondola would cross] within the Granite Chief Wilderness Area boundary in 1984 is a clear statement of its value to our nation; that we recognize that this land is special – and should remain that way. We ask you to join us in honoring that commitment, made as a nation more than fifty years ago and reaffirmed by the California Wilderness Act of 1984: No proposed gondola should threaten the existing boundaries – and timeless values – of the National Granite Chief Wilderness Area.”
Sierra Watch was joined by four other organizations, CalWild, the Tahoe Area and Motherlode Chapters of the Sierra Club, Wilderness Watch, and the Granite Chief Wilderness Protection League, and Great Old Broads for Wilderness wholly endorses these efforts!
