Subject: [CPEO-MEF] REUSE: Push for Fort Ord (CA) National Monument
Local activists head to D.C. to push for Fort Ord National Monument.

With more than 60 public agencies and a dozen-plus citizens' groups claiming a stake in the former Fort Ord, consensus on how to manage it is as rare as the black legless lizard. So the solidarity in a push to designate up to 14,650 acres as a national monument is something of a shocker; stakeholders from Fort Ord Reuse Authority to the Sierra Club are asking the feds to protect the U.S. Bureau of Land Management's Ford Ord acreage in perpetuity.

Next week, local activists Henrietta Stern of FORT Friends and Gordon Smith of Keep Fort Ord Wild are hoping to find as much agreement among the many federal agencies with a hand in the designation. At the invitation of the Conservation Lands Foundation, Stern and Smith are headed to Washington, D.C., from Jan. 30-Feb. 2. "The issue is making sure people understand why the public land needs to be protected," foundation spokeswoman Meghan Kissell says.
