Limekiln State Park Wilderness

Post by Tom Hopkins »

Governor Schwarzenegger has signed AB 2945 which, among other matters, created the 413 acre Limekiln State Wilderness in Limekiln State Park. This is the first State Wilderness Area created by the California Legislature in about 30 years. The bill also amended the California Wilderness Act of 1974 to include “minimum tool” language consistent with the federal Wilderness Act of 1964. The bill was introduced and carried by Assemblymember John Laird at the request of the Ventana Wilderness Alliance, the California Wilderness Project, and the Ventana Chapter of the Sierra Club. Along its torturous path through the legislature, various park bond appropriations were also tacked on to the bill. A full text of the chaptered bill is available at: http://www.leginfo.ca.gov/pub/07-08/bil ... ptered.pdf.
