Your Chance to Influence New Jack City Camping

Date: 5/11/2010

You have the opportunity to influence improvements at Sawtooth Camping Area at New Jack City.

The Southern California Bureau of Land Management (BLM) is proposing a project that would enhance the existing recreation opportunities for climbers and remote campers with the addition of 12 camp sites, one new restroom, a new kiosk, a picnic area and a host site. Each camp site would have a shade ramada, picnic table, fire pit and grill, and a barbeque.

The BLM office would like climbers' input before writing an environmental assessment for improvements of the camping area. Written comments are due by close of business May 16, 2010.

For more information and to provide comments, visit the BLM website.
