In response to Senator Tiffany and Grothman’s introduction of Bill SB 278, potentially allowing G-TAC to restrict up to 4,000 acres of MFL (Managed Forest Land), that is supposed to be open to the public for hunting, fishing, hiking, recreating, etc., there will be a  bicycle ride and rally to/in the Penokees to celebrate the public uses of MFL this Saturday, Sept. 7th.

 The 30-mile bike ride will leave Ashland at 7:30 a.m. in the parking lot across from the Black Cat Coffee Shop on Chapple St., and the rally will begin in the hills by the Tyler Forks River on Moore Park Rd at 1:00 p.m.. The rally will further display that public land is exactly that: public land. Let’s enjoy it how it was meant to be enjoyed, and help keep it accessible to all!

  Please remember to bring water and snacks/lunch to eat, and dress for the weather! This will also be a wonderful opportunity to take photos of the beautiful Penokee Hills and how we spend time in MFL; there may also be a photo-gallery post-event.
