We need the climbing community to send letters to New York State to convince them to expand climbing opportunities in Minnewaska State Park Preserve. Please see the GCC's talking points page for ideas on what to write at http://gunksclimbers.org/talkpoints.shtml. There is also a sample letter to use as a template at: http://gunksclimbers.org/docs/2009-10-gcc-minne-letter-TEMPLATE.doc

The deadline for public comments is November 13, 2009. This is your chance to have your voice heard - they are listening and we need to let them know how many climbers are out there, how much we'd like more areas open to climbing, and how climbers can benefit the park, the community, the economy and be responsible environmental stewards.

Send your letters to:

Fred Williams, Deputy Director
Palisades Region
NYS Office of Parks, Recreation and Historic Preservation
Bear Mountain, NY 10911
Phone: 845-786-2701
Fax: 845-786-2776

Thomas B. Lyons, Director of Resource Management NYC Office of Parks, Recreation and Historic Preservation Empire State Plaza Agency Building 1 Albany, NY 12238 Phone: 518-474-0409 Fax: 518-474-7013

Or send emails to: Minnewaska.plan@oprhp.state.ny.us

Thank you!
-The Gunks Climbers' Coalition Board of Directors -

There's an email generator on the Access Fund website.

If you're a resident of NY, make sure you edit the form to indicate so and email to your local reps as well.
