Last Week For Comments on Shawnee Plan

If you haven't been to Illinois' only national forest, the Shawnee, it is a really special part of the state. Roadless forests, pristine streams, unique geologic formations, and more make the Shawnee an outdoor recreation mecca for the midwest, and an important ecological resource for many species of wildlife.

Sierra Club won a lawsuit a decade ago overturning a plan to allow logging, oil drilling, and mining on the Shawnee. Now the Forest Service has a new proposed plan, with some improvements, but again with provisions for logging and mining.

You have until June 20th to add your voice to Illinoisans who are asking the Forest Service to make habitat protection and passive outdoor recreation the top priorities for the Shawnee.

Because you are a blogger on the list of progressive bloggers at DJWinfo.com, I am making this open invitation to participate as a frontpage blogger at SoapBlox Chicago, http://www.soapblox.net/chicago .

By bringing the progressive blog audience to one place we can synergize our collective influence.

SoapBlox Chicago is running on cutting edge software, very similar to Scoop, that allows readers to rate and reply to comments, as well as post and recommend diaries of thier own.

My own personal interest in this project is as a reader of blogs who seeks the ease of use and the quality of interaction of top-notch blog software and writers applied to the Chicago/Midwest political scene.

Create an account, post a diary, and I will promote you to FrontPage Blogger status. Or Just poke around and check it out.
