Sample Letter/Talking Points to Use:
Dear Bureau of Land Management,
Thank you for this opportunity to provide comments for how our public lands are managed. The BLM lands in southern Nevada are important to me because (provide reason or anecdote here).
Suggested Comment #1:
Use: 3.2.14 Lands with Wilderness Characteristics in your title for the following comment:
Body of Comment #1
I feel that the following areas evaluated by the BLM have high wilderness values and support including these areas as additional lands that meet the BLM Lands with Wilderness Characteristics criteria:
Bitter Ridge (NV-SN-52-015)
Virgin Mountain Addition (NV-SN-52-012)
Eldorado Addition (NV-SN-52-021 A&B)
Buffington Pockets (NV-SN-52-011)
Last Chance Range (NV-SN-30-002 A&B)
Specter Range (NV-SN-30-004 A&B)
I feel that the following areas, which were overlooked by the BLM Lands with Wilderness Characteristic inventory, also meet the criteria for wilderness and should be inventoried, evaluated, and included with the Lands with Wilderness Characteristics for the district:
St. Thomas Gap (NV-050-02R-12)
Summit Springs (NV-050-0440)
Suggested Comment #2:
Use: 126.96.36.199 Lands with Wilderness Characteristics in your title for the following comment:
Body of Comment #2:
I strongly encourage the district to adopt Alternative 2 for this element with the above listed lands included and also managed to protect, preserve, and maintain their wilderness characteristics.
Suggested Comment # 3
Use: 3.4.6 Wilderness Study Areas in your title for the following comment
Body of Comment #3:
I support the strongest management actions to prevent OHV usage from damaging the wilderness resources of these areas and compromising the non-impairment standards set by BLM Manual 6330 for Wilderness Study Areas.
Suggested Comment # 4
Use: 188.8.131.52 Travel and Transportation in your title for the following comment

I support the Alternative 2 for OHV Designation with the inclusion of all district WSAs and the above listed additional Lands with Wilderness Characteristics into the “Closed to All Motorized or Mechanized Vehicles” category.
