    i got this email from my local 4x4 group and it #@%&*@ me off damn ford company

    This is pretty important people. When a big Corporation makes a large
    donation to an extreme environmental group it defeats what thousands of us
    little people do.

    Proud I do not own a Ford, and now I never will.

    > Ford Motor Company recently granted the National Audubon Society $5
    million. The Audubon Society has been actively pushing OHV closures for
    years and was one of the primary advocates of the Clinton/Gore Roadless
    Initiative. Audubon is just one of the green groups that Ford has been
    supporting. Let Ford Motor Company know how you feel about this. Use the
    following as a guide for your message - or cut and paste - to send a note to
    Sandra E. Ulsh, Vice President of the Ford Motor Company Fund, at

    supporting the Audubon Society and other anti-recreation-access groups. I,
    and my family, are outdoor recreation enthusiasts who strongly disagree with
    the Audubon Society's public land lock up agenda. Why is Ford Motor Company
    supporting groups who advocate closing public lands that are being used by
    your customers. I encourage Ford Motor Company to consider financial support
    for recreation advocacy groups such as the BlueRibbon Coalition.

    I realize this is an old post, I'm not sure if anyone will see this or not but I felt it worth asking about[​IMG]
    Re: The phrase "anti-recreation-access groups"
    Do any of the big environmental groups, even the more radical ones like Greenpeace actually propose no accesss to forests by humans? I was under the impression they only wanted to keep vehicles and construction out and that they didn't mind hikers/campers/bird watchers etc.
    Any light you guys can shed on this is appreciated.
    Thanks,
    -Aaron

    Currently Seria Club wants to keep out all mechinized recration-that includes bicycles and wheel chairs. The more radical groups want to keep all humans out-including hikers.
