The Berryessa Snow Mountain National Conservation Area campaign is gaining steam. On March 7, 2013, Representative Mike Thompson re-introduced the Berryessa Snow Mountain National Conservation Area Act with co-sponsors Representatives John Garamendi, Jared Huffman, Ami Bera, and Anna Eshoo, which would protect 350,000 acres of public land just a short drive from the San Francisco Bay Area and Sacramento.
In addition, Senator Barbara Boxer has introduced the senate companion to the Berryessa Snow Mountain National Conservation Area Act. Re-introduction of these bills follows nearly six years of work at the community level to permanently protect this special place.
