EPA Region 8 is launching an Earth Day poster contest in conjunction with the 2014 EPA Earth Day theme of climate change, and with the EPA Climate Change in Focus Video Contest.

Theme of the Poster Contest:  What are the impacts of climate changes in my area?  The Earth’s climate is getting warmer. Rain patterns are changing, sea level is rising, and snow and ice are melting sooner in the spring. As global temperatures continue to rise, we are likely to see more changes in our climate and our local environment. These changes have the potential to affect people, animals, and ecosystems in many ways.  To enter the poster contest, represent the climate change impacts in your area on a poster using the art medium of your choice (drawing, painting, photograph, fiber, mixed media, etc.).

All posters will be displayed, and the winners will be announced, at an event on Monday, April 28, from 12:00 to 1:00 pm at the EPA Region 8 Regional Office in Denver, CO.

Colorado State Board of Education passed the CO Environmental Educational Plan!

It’s time to celebrate!!!! I wanted these two committees to be the first to know that the State Board of Education met today to be presented with the final draft of the Environmental Education Plan and in a surprise move, they voted on the motion, and officially passed and adopted the plan!!!! It passed with Bipartisan support (only 2 no votes) and the acknowledgement that this work is happening in schools across Colorado!

This came from Katie Navin of the Colorado Alliance of Environmental Education (CAEE). CAEE got the first state EE plan passed with the help of many organizations, public, private and non-profit.  However the greatest part of the Thanks because of the greatest part of the drive, energy, enthusiasm (way too much enthusiasm) and leadership goes to Katie Navin of the CAEE.

Colorado Alliance of Environmental Educators need your help in developing its future

I serve on the Board of Directors of the Colorado Alliance of Environmental Educators. We need some input on the future of CAEE.  If you have a relationship with Environmental Education and Colorado can you please complete the survey. The original deadline was tomorrow but we are not getting enough feedback so…..

Warmest greetings. The Colorado Alliance for Environmental Education (CAEE) for your thoughts and opinions about the future of our organization. We acknowledge you as a leader in our community, and your observations, views and insights are important to us!

CAEE is beginning the process of updating our strategic plan, a plan that will outline our vision, goals and primary activities for the next five years. Currently our organization is operating under the guidance of a 2006 strategic plan, and many of the goals and activities described in that plan have been accomplished. Furthermore, as we look ahead to the future, we must consider that much about our social, economic, political, educational, environmental, and organizational climate has changed in the last decade.

How should CAEE change to adapt to these new conditions? Who do we need to reach out to? What do we need to do to be most effective in the future?

As an alliance of organizations for environmental education, what might we do to provide services to and attract the support of the many potential allies in our state-wide community? And more specifically, what might we do to serve your needs and the needs of your peers?

We want to know what you think.

Attached to this email, we are sending you a short list of questions. Our hope is that you will take the time to contemplate and carefully consider your response, as your views will help us plan the future for this organization.

Please help us by writing your answers and returning them to us (see address below), OR calling us to discuss these ideas before Friday August 24th. 

http://www.surveymonkey.com/s/Y939ZGJ

If you have any questions or concerns, or would rather discuss these ideas personally, please feel free to call or write to CAEE OR to the name and address below. (Karen is helping to facilitate our planning process, and will be viewing and compiling your responses.) We may also follow up with a personal phone call to you.

“Sportsmen” bill working through congress would allow ATVs in Wilderness

ATVsComing to Your Favorite Wilderness Area

Thousand Island Lake (2997m) and Banner Peak (...

May 29, 2012

The misleadingly-named “Sportsmen’s Heritage Act” has wilderness-busting
provisions that could be coming to any and all of America’s wilderness
areas.

“It’s possibly the biggest threat to this nation’s wilderness areas since
the Wilderness Act was passed in 1964,” says Tom Martin, Co-Director of
River Runners for Wilderness, “even long time wilderness defenders who
thought they’d seen it all are shocked.”

HR4089 is a combination of 4 previous bills. Although there are many
debatable elements, the worst allows what were previously illegal activities
to now occur in all areas managed as wilderness under the National Park
Service, the Forest Service, and all of the nation’s Federal land agencies.

Among activities that could be allowed are ATV use, new road construction,
mining, logging and the construction of fixed structures. In fact, the most
dangerous element of this bill is that it gives managers a blank check to
allow any activities they construe as beneficial to sportsmen.

The bill has passed the House of Representatives and a Senate Companion Bill
S2066 has been introduced with supporters such as the National Rifle
Association and sports industry groups urging a quick passage.

The Congressional Research Service (CRS), a branch of the Library of
Congress that provides in depth analysis to members of Congress and others,
outlined the threats in a recent review of the proposal. The CRS noted that
the bill’s “..language could be construed as opening wilderness areas to
virtually any activity related to hunting and fishing, even if otherwise
inconsistent with wilderness values. Despite the Wilderness Act’s explicit
ban on temporary and permanent roads, if H.R. 4089 were passed, roads
arguably could be constructed in wilderness areas.”

The report also noted that “.while it appears that timber harvest could be
allowed, it would seem difficult to harvest timber without roads or
machines.”

The entire CRS’ brief (4 page) memo is on the River Runners for Wilderness
website at http://rrfw.org/sites/default/files/CRSreport.pdf

The wilderness destroying language in this bill could easily be omitted
before final passage and we urge you to take action to insist that this is
done:

Contact your state’s Senators and ask that they not support S2066 and to
protect all provisions of The Wilderness Act.

You are also encouraged to contact lobbying supporters of HR4089 & S2066,
such as the National Rifle Association at their website, particularly if you
are a member: https://www.nraila.org/secure/contact-us.aspx and let them
know that you support the Wilderness Act as written.

You are also encouraged to write a letter to the editor of your local
newspaper. National media has largely ignored these bills and you could be
instrumental in raising awareness of the threat.

To learn more about the threats posed by this legislation, visit:
Wilderness Watch’s analysis:
http://www.wildernesswatch.org/pdf/HR%204089%20Analysis–WW.pdf.
Other advocacy group sites:
http://wilderness.org/content/sneak-attack-wilderness and
http://conservationlands.org/time-to-stop-hr-4089-in-its-tracks.

Surveys show that wilderness enjoys very broad support by our country’s
citizens and should be protected. River Runners for Wilderness will keep you
apprised of this looming disaster for our country’s precious wilderness
lands.

Journal of Park and Recreation Administration (JPRA) Call for Papers: Managing Protected Areas: Global Perspectives

Call for Paper

sRaet protected area, Hove in Arendal

Journal of Park and Recreation Administration (JPRA)

Special Issue: Managing Protected Areas: Global Perspectives
hisp-card1-shdw.jpg
The establishment of Yellowstone National Park (the world’s first national park) in 1872 has been the foundation for the global protected area movement for biodiversity conservation. This legacy is evident with the significant global growth in the protected areas network which currently constitutes approximately 12% of the world’s land surface, but only about 1% for marine protected areas. The substantial growth in protected areas has occurred over the past three decades with considerable increase in developing countries. However, with expansion, the concept of protected areas has evolved beyond the traditional model of strict biodiversity conservation to incorporate improvement of local livelihoods.Protected areas are generally managed by government entities to safeguard the natural, ecological, and cultural values. However, this model of management has also diversified to incorporate alternate approaches such as co-managed protected areas, indigenous and community conserved areas, private protected areas, and so forth. Given the various types, multiple use, and management structures in protected areas, the need for effective management to meet respective objectives is critical. The challenges vary among different types and location of protected areas, as developing countries have a more pronounced requirement to engage and improve local community’s needs.Protected area management is complex as managers will need to find the optimal balance with respect to environmental, sociocultural, and economic issues within and adjacent to the management area. The three dimensions are not mutually exclusive as an integrated approach is preferred for contemporary protected area management. This call for papers invites conceptual and empirical research, case studies, and comparative analysis. Submission that details research, concepts, and practices relevant to current understanding and management of protected areas will be given priority. Also, given the JPRA audience, it is important that research implications should have relevance for managers of protected areas and policy makers. This special issue has been formulated to contribute to the discourse leading to the 6th International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN) World Parks Congress to be held in 2014. The IUCN World Parks Congress is the largest global forum on protected areas that is held once in every decade.

JPRA invites papers for a special edition entitled Managing Protected Areas: Global Perspectives. Submissions might include but not be limited to the following topics:

Manuscripts will need to follow the format instructions for the Journal of Park and Recreation Administrationand will undergo the normal blind review process with three reviewers. The deadline for submission of papers is November 1, 2012. The special edition is scheduled for publication in the third quarter issue of 2013. Papers should be submitted with a cover letter by email to:Brijesh Thapa, Ph.D.Eric Friedheim Tourism Institute
