You are correct that there is an outstanding amount of money required to complete the buyout. The Trust for Public Lands has initiated a fundraising campaign to do so and I am optimistic that they will be successful, but help is definitely still needed. For more information or to make a donation go to their website at http://www.tpl.org/SaveTheHoback.

My understanding is that the remaining $4.25 million must be raised by the end of this year for this agreement to work, but none of the e-mails, blog posts, or press releases about this issue state where that money will come from or what will happen if it is not raised. Where will that money come from, and what will happen if it is not raised?

I also worked for the Forest Service out of Kemmerer and worked seismic crews from Afton and Alpine. I got to know that country. The upper Green River valley around the Hoback rim, Hoback Basin, Bondurant is beautiful wild country and drilling would spoil it. I am glad you kept the drillers out.. I hope you can keep them out in the future. You know they want that gas and as long as it’s there they will try to get it.
