Recognizing that the legal and moral responsibility of the BLM to protect the natural ecosystems of the public lands under its control is paramount and supercedes any economic use, such as cattle grazing; the undersigned demand that the cattle grazing no longer be allowed in the area designated as the \" Round Mountain Allotment\". This is non-native, invasive species is not adapted to the relatively dry ecosystem of the Southwest and has significantly contributed to it\'s destruction. It has degraded the natural watershed in the Round mountain area, upset the balance of native flora, caused greatly decreased habitat for wild animals and increased wildfire danger. Cattle grazing has and does prevent the regrowth of trees and shrubs after every fire so that the result is the alteration of the environment from its natural former forested state to the desert it has become. The grazing of cattle is not compatible with the preservation of this environment and should not be allowed in the Round Mountain Area.
We are concerned individuals who wish to stop cattle grazing in the Round Mountain Area. It is vital that this stop. It is destroying the natural beauty of the area.
