The Backcountry Horsemen of California is a group of dedicated men and women actively participating as caretakers of the wilderness.  They are involved in preserving stock users’ historic use of wilderness trails, they perform public service activities for the managing federal agencies and they are continually working to educate their members on how to be ”Gentle Users” by practicing Leave No Trace methods and by treating other users with courtesy and consideration. California and the western states have a long tradition of using pack and saddle stock in the backcountry.  Backcountry Horsemen carry on this tradition in modern times.  With this use comes the responsibility and obligation to care for these wild lands and to ensure their use for future generations.

    Horses bring horse flys, and chase me off the trail.

    Gentle use? Leave no trace? It’s often easier to walk alongside trails where stock travel than to walk on the trail. (I’m NOT suggesting doing that, it’s just my observation.) I understand the historical perspective of stock use in the mountains, but let’s not make believe it’s benign.

    🙁 AGENDA 21 and The Wildlands Project- It sounds like the name of a low budget science fiction film, doesn’t it? Don’t let the good name fool you to the true agenda at hand! Carbon taxation is only around the corner as we increasingly divert our focus towards more eco-compliant endeavours.

    After reading several mainstream conspiracies in relation to globalization by way of environmentalism I decided to investigate the matter further. The following are my findings (I compiled these about a year ago for an online forum):
    What is according to the United Nations?
    It sounds like a planned… “HUNGER GAMES… like future
    In a nutshell Agenda 21 is a program run by the United Nations related to sustainable development. This global blueprint dictates the requisite action to be taken in governing all aspects of human impact on the environment. The full text was divulged at the United Nations Conference on Environment and Development in Rio de Janeiro on June 14, 1992. The program was adopted by 149 governments.

    The text itself is 900 pages in length and is segregated under the following four sections:

    Section I: Social and Economic Dimensions
    Section II: Conservation and Management of Resources for Development
    Section III: Strengthening the Role of Major Groups
    Section IV: Means of Implementation

    Why should I be concerned with Agenda 21?

    Agenda 21 elevates nature above man and is based in its entirety on socialist control mechanisms. The global to local action plan concerns itself with global government. These eludes an end to national sovereignty, the abolition of private property, the restructure of the family unit and the increased restriction of mobility and individual opportunity.
    Wouldn’t I have heard of any institutional or political activity by now?

    You should have. George Bush executed the Agenda 21 protocols in 1992. Within a year Bill Clinton by executive order established the Presidential Council for Sustainable Development without congressional hearing. The subsequent eco-sociopathic Biodiversity and Wildlands project has already cast aside millions of acres of public and private American soil in the name of ‘conservation’ 🙁

      This sounds like some details are missing. No one wants unreasonable regulation, but on the other hand destruction of plants, trees, animals and insects can create a chain reaction of loss. Consider the destruction of the Amazon forests. Your presentation doesn’t tell enough about Agenda 21 for a satisfactory response. Benett Kessler

      Well put Doug. Agenda 21 is encroaching its way into the sierra’s. Have you noticed the smart meters being installed in mammoth without public approval?
