Now there is also a BLM motion to restrict millions of acres of land from use to save the Sage Grouse in an attempt to declare them a endangered species. The new regulations proposed by the BLM will restrict the use of land in 10 Western States. As far as I can tell the Sage Grouse is not endangered at ...

One of the things in it is a new public recreational mining area (their phrasing) in the Dixie Creek / Standard Creek area just north of Prairie City in central Oregon.  This area produced gold in the past and is in the northeast/central gold belt.

4 Replies and 5957 Views New page for links and such  5957  4 Started by How about a page where you can quick link to sites such as LR2000, Geocommunicator, etc.  Can be a locked thread as no posts would be needed, suggestions for new links and sites could be done on this thread. Might be an easier way for some that are not familiar with all the sites needed to get information, I know I don't know them all.......

3 Replies and 5938 Views Raise community awareness  5938  3 Started by  Brad Jones From time to time, I am asked by local GPAA chapters how to get more people to their meetings. Well, one easy way is to go to the website of your local newspaper, radio station or TV channel and post or submit a notice to their “community calendar.” It is very easy to get free publicity since GPAA chapter meetings are open to the public and are free to attend. Here is an example of how to write one. Be sure to keep it simple, include the 5Ws (who, what, where, when and why) and follo...
