The Sierra Club's annual budget was $88 million in 2011 and $100 million in 2012. In 2013, the group's budget was $97.8 million. Wilderness coalition contributions 644,140, CBD $20,512,577 Off Roader not so close ASA $602,145 - CORVA $152,526

So much for going this summer

Look up your favorite Environmental extreme organization for that matter you favorite OHV group

The fight over Pismo Beach has been going on since the 80s long before the CBD was around. Sierra Club and some other enviro groups helped get the area reduced due to the Snowy Plover and a bullshit dust (silica) argument. With the help of the California Coastal Commission and the residents of Nipoma they have slowly chipped away at more area. Covid shut down all state parks and now they are looking for every excuse to keep it closed.

Since the closure the air quality down wind has gotten worse not better. So the argument OHV use was causing dust (silica) went bye bye. So the focus is back on protecting a the bird. Things would of been fine except the birds moved into the unused OHV area and some rangers were caught scooting them back to the fenced area. This gave the commission the all they needed to keep it closed through October.

Oh! believe me went through it and the S21 desert perfection act (protection) and Imperial Sand Dunes and Death Vally
we got out spent believe but retained some areas until the next suit comes along

Unfortunately you right with the closures in effect there is going to be effects positive and negative they will exploit it for their narrative. Kinda like the Milkvetch the plover was there in the late 70s when I first went it was a bit of a drive from San Diego but a good time

maybe Sand Mountain Nevada is up next
