Don’t Fence Out History at Tule Lake!

National Parks Conservation Association

During WWII, Tule Lake camp in Modoc County, California, (near the California-Oregon border) became a maximum-security “segregation center” to incarcerate 12,000 Japanese American inmates who resisted their imprisonment and were branded by the federal government as disloyal. The history of Tule Lake is unique and should be accessible to all Americans.

Tule Lake is designated as a National Historic Landmark, the highest level of recognition our nation gives to a historic site, and is also part of the WWII Valor in the Pacific National Monument.

Currently, a small airport used primarily by crop dusting planes cuts through the center of the Tule Lake site. The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) is proposing construction of an eight-foot high, three-mile long fence around the perimeter of the airport that will cut off public access to the Tule Lake site. Besides being utterly unnecessary in such a desolate place, such a fence would desecrate the physical and spiritual aspects of Tule Lake, which has great historical and personal importance to many people.

Please contact the FAA Administrator Michael Huerta and FAA Environmental Protection Specialist Douglas Pomeroy below and ask them to preserve access to Tule Lake and to not build the proposed fence:
