Default Nature conservancy

I was watching the Outdoor channel last night. I saw the Nature Conservancy put up a pretty lengthy commercial on there. They are coming out of the woodwork lately. I have to wonder what the current push is for the obvious presence.

If it's unpopular and probably not going to pass in congress. If the overly funded branches of gov are taking heat. Why not fund an "ORG" just out the side door to buy property that butts up to existing wilderness in large chunks? Seems like another way to get the claws and over reaching tentacles to add more control. Maybe they will just want money for accessing their property at first.

Exactly. This is another Agenda Land Grab. This administration is out of control. The American people have spoken with their vote and yet these dictators and Czars have said they don't care what the American people want, they will do whatever "they" think is right.

WTF!? I thought these a$$holes were supposed to represent the will of the PEOPLE.

They should be thrown in prison as they are criminals in my book.

The Nature Conservancy can go to hell as far as I'm concerned. They are currently buying up ranches south of my hometown of Malta, MT, (for far above what anyone in that area can afford to pay for them) that border the Missouri River Breaks National Monument. Their goal is to have free ranging buffalo in the whole northeastern corner of the state. None of the locals want them there, but because they are technically a private group nothing can be done about it.

There was such a local uprising about it and concern that the BLM was going to go in with them and let the buffalo roam on the public land that Obama's dog, Interior Secretary Ken Salizar, paid a personal visit to Malta for a public meeting that packed the high school gymnasium with everyone in the county. He tried to tell everyone that there are no "current" plans for the government to re-release free-roaming buffalo and smooth talk the situation. Well in short, the people in attendance were not having it and I'm amazed he got out of there without being lynched. Now 2 years later, the state is putting together its bison management plan for free-roaming bison.

Dan Rather did a special on the Nature Conservancy and their plans up there, and "all we want is to have free roaming animals as far as the eye can see" as they are on top of a knoll where you can see for 150 miles each direction. They claim they are paying fair market price for land. It may be fair market back east, but it sure as hell isn't out here.

They may be private neighbors, but they are the kind of neighbors you don't want around.

I havent heard of this ^. Just had dinner the other night with a guy that works for the TNC and he didnt have much to say as far as them buying up large tracts of land across the west. As far as most nature conservancy operations that I know about, they are trying to run cattle.

This group apprears to be building private wilderness areas. It should be illegal as far as I'm concerned. One of their biggest donors is the F'ing GOVERNMENT. Folks, this is wrong and about as shady as you can get. They must be stopped.

All we can do at this point is stay involved and let our voices be heard at the local level. If they do in fact close all "their" land to motorized recreation, then I say f'em and ride anyway. There are not enough cops and rangers who can ride to catch us all. Perhaps some form of organized civil disobedience. It worked for Gandhi and MLK Jr.

As a tax payer and resident of Kittitas county, I would prefer the sheriff focus on thieves and drug addicts. Not families spending time together and enjoying the outdoors.

You are right. First there was only the Nature Conservancy out south there. The APF came latter. I got excited too quick with that first post.
