Subject: PRNS Ranch Comprehensive Management Plan Environmental Assessment
Dear Cicely,
The Point Reyes Seashore Ranchers Association (PRSRA) has asked me to send you a copy of the PRSRA scoping comments for the current NEPA process.  Since PRNS announced that it was beginning the process and made the materials available to PRSRA, the work began.  Over the past month, PRSRA membership got together regularly to produce these scoping comments.  These scoping comments are the result of an in-depth participation by most of the ranchers.  There were hundreds of suggestions by all ranchers involved to arrive at this letter that was ultimately unanimously approved by PRSRA and includes the signatures of almost every rancher within PRNS and GGNRA.
The members of PRSRA are taking this process very seriously and are looking forward to a collaborative, open process that will result in the long-term viability of the ranches, while protecting the exceptional cultural and natural resources within the ranchlands of PRNS and GGNRA.
A physical copy of the attached letter, with the signature page and its attachments, will be hand delivered to your office tomorrow. [appended below]
Thank you,
Kevin, and all the ranchers at PRNS and GGNRA

    All we can hope for is that they are at least listened to with any degree of equanimity, although I have my doubts. These hard working ranchers and stewards of the land should not have to be fighting for their livelihoods and ranches with the damn Park Service at all.
