    SUBJECT: California: American River
    TO : Naturists and other concerned citizens

    Dear Naturist,

    The Naturist Action Committee wishes to make you aware of further positive
    developments in the situation at Auburn State Recreation Area in California.

    Recently in Auburn, local naturist activists Marty Brittan and Durand Stieger
    met with Auburn Sector Superintendent Jay Galloway and Gold Fields District
    Superintendent Scott Nakaji. NAC board member Allen Baylis participated in the
    meeting by telephone from his office in southern California.

    Messrs. Galloway and Nakaji presented a welcome and encouraging shift in the
    position of the Auburn SRA toward naturist issues. The dramatic change
    reflects a thoughtful reconsideration of this matter by California Parks personnel.

    GOOD NEWS: INITIAL POSITION REVERSED

    Specifically, the park officials have acknowledged that they had initially
    pursued a wrong path when they sought to prohibit skinny-dipping and nude
    sunbathing along the American River. Existing California Parks protocols provide a
    way to manage FOR nude recreation in traditional areas. Both Galloway and
    Nakaji have now expressed their commitment to those protocols, including the Cahill
    Policy, a proven field-level method of managing clothing-optional recreation
    in the California Park system.

    Cahill allows rangers to insist that naturist users get dressed for a time
    when a complaint is received, but Galloway and Nakaji have promised to exercise
    discretion in considering and processing whatever complaints may be made.

    This is an enormous turnaround from the policy of aggressive elimination that
    characterized the Auburn SRA's approach toward nudity just two months ago.

    NOW ... AN END TO THE LETTER WRITING CAMPAIGN

    On June 10, the Naturist Action Committee called you to action to defend
    skinny-dipping and nude sunbathing at traditional locations on the American River
    within the Auburn State Recreation Area. There is no question that your spec
    tacular response to NAC's Action Alert played a prominent part in forcing the
    reconsideration we're now seeing.

    NAC thanks you for your enthusiastic involvement!

    Now, it is time to end the letter writing campaign, as the next phase of this
    activist effort unfolds.

    WHAT IS NAC DOING NOW?

    The Naturist Action Committee is continuing to work with local naturists and
    is pursuing the dialog with California Parks officials. This remains a long
    term process.

    NAC is working with user groups representing other interests, so that
    understanding may be improved and user conflict minimized.

    NAC is focusing on long term considerations by working to see that naturist
    interests are properly included in the General Management Plan presently being
    developed for the Auburn unit.

    WHAT IS NAC ASKING YOU TO DO?

    This is an Update. NAC is not calling for any new action. The letter writing
    campaign has served its purpose quite well. NAC is requesting that no further
    letters be sent at this time.

      This is great news. It's encouraging that they were willing review all the input and then make a decision that benefitted all.

      I'm glad I support the NAC and donate to them annually. I encourage every nudist to do the same no matter how much or how little you are able to donate.
