I made a crude petition asking Deane Swickard of BLM and Rex Bloomfield of the Placer County BOS to do whatever it takes to acquire at least some of the private lands now for sale in the Gold Run Diggings and on Canyon Creek. Our group signed the petition and I will send it along soon. Of course a lot of signatures could be rounded up locally, in the Alta-Dutch Flat-Gold Run area, and I guess I will work on that.
