First Public Hearing on Crisis in Roadless Forest Rule, Decline in National Parks to be held in Albuquerque.

Elected Officials, Environmentalists and Community Groups Urged to Speak Out

	Albuquerque, NM, Aug. 2nd/PRNewswire/on The Campaign to Protect America’s Lands (CPAL), The Coalition of Concerned National Park Service Retirees (CCNPSR) and the Heritage Forests Campaign (HFC) will hold a public hearing in Albuquerque for citizens concerned about the decline of U.S. national parks in the region and the recently announced Bush Administration plan to reverse the roadless forest rule.

	The hearing in Albuquerque is set for 2-4 p.m. on August 7th at the Albuquerque Sheraton Uptown, 2600 Louisiana Blvd. N.E.  For more information, call (505)867-0047 (greens phone number) or go to http://www.protectamericaslands.org on the Web.

	The Albuquerque event will be co-sponsored by a number of local/regional groups, including CPAL, CCNPSR, HFC, Republicans for Environmental Protection, The New Mexico Wilderness Alliance, The New Mexico Wildlife Federation, The Archological Conservancy, the New Mexico Heritage Preservation Alliance, the Public Interest Research Group and National Environmental Trust.

The Albuquerque public hearing is the first in a series of three forums set in Western cities.  Others will be held in Tucson, AZ on August 14, 2004 and Denver, CO (date to be determined).

	The CPAL/CCNPSR/HFC hearings are expected to attract a substantial number of elected officials as well as, community groups, environmentalists and other experts on issues involving national parks and federal lands.

	The coalition of Concerned National Park Service Retirees (http://www.npsretirees.org) consists of more than 270 former non-political career employees of the National Park Service.  Many Coalition members were senior NPS leaders who received awards for stewardship of America’s top natural and cultural resource.  

The Coalition ranks include five former regional directors or deputy regional directors;  20 former associate or assistant directors at the national or regional level;  40 former division chiefs at the national or regional level;  and over 90 former park superintendents or assistant superintendents.

	The Campaign to Protect America’s Lands (http://www.protectamericaslands.org) conserves our natural and historical heritage by exposing policies that permit destruction of our parks and public lands for private profit.

	The Heritage Forests Campaign is an alliance of conservationists, wildlife advocates, clergy, educators, scientists, and other Americans working together to uphold protection of our National Forests.
