The PPA and their cohorts will say anything to move their agenda forward. An example by Mr Howell's post, Wednesday September 21st 2016, on their web site is a picture below of a Snowy Owl sitting in a dead tree. There has been only one Snowy reported in the Pines; 3/7/2014 in a blueberry field off Rt 206 between Chew and Rockwood roads. That looks like a dune area in the picture as they are not creatures of the forest.

This is in Edwin B Forsythe Wildlife Refuge. Within the boundaries of the Pinelands National Reserve. Thanks for sharing the photo. Here is the blog post it was featured on. http://www.pinelandsalliance.org/blog/2016/09/


I have nothing against driving in the Pines on roads, nor does anyone else I communicate with. I want these roads to be defined, and my personal position is flexible on that definition. I would prefer that they be navigable by stock 4 wheel drive in all but flood condition and the historically used roads do meet that criteria by and large.

I don't have all the history behind this argument against the PPA, but how did this thread go from a tour of Wharton damage by ORV's to Snowy Owls? In winter 2013-2014, I saw a snowy owl in the plains near Warren Grove. Last time I checked, that's still part of the pines. Does the PPA have some kind of hidden agenda to ban all motor vehicles from off roading in the pines? Don't mean to cause another argument, just not sure what this is all about.

Someone was trying to say I was misrepresenting where the Snowy Owl photo was taken. They were egregiously incorrect.
