We need your help saving one of the West Coast’s most wild and beautiful river regions from becoming a wasteland of stumps. The U.S. Forest Service wants to log more than 4,000 acres of Oregon’s Rogue River-Siskiyou National Forest that burned last summer during the Chetco Bar fire. This is an area loved by hikers, anglers, rafters and many others for recreation, and the wildlife habitat created by the fire is critically important to many species.
Using the form on this page, tell the Forest Service that absolutely no logging should occur on public lands except what’s necessary for safety, such as along access roads.
As currently outlined, the agency’s post-fire logging plan would destroy important northern spotted owl habitat and waterways that endangered salmon need to survive — and all in addition to the thousands of acres of private lands nearby that have already been clearcut.
Tell the Forest Service that there’s no ecological defense for post-fire logging. The area is teeming with wildlife and needs to be protected, not logged.
