BLM Targets Forests And Watersheds - Protect Grave Creek!

The BLM is at a crossroad: some folks in the agency are trying to find ways to thin second-growth forests, restore damaged watersheds and reduce the impacts of logging roads, while others want to "regenerate" ancient forests and punch more logging roads through the mountains. Stand with us and ask the Bureau of Land Management to restore, rather than exploit, ancient forests providing critical fish and wildlife habitat.

News

Public sounds off on gas pipeline
The Oregon Department of Environmental Quality fielded questions Thursday night about a controversial natural gas pipeline proposed for southwest Oregon. Residents opposed to a natural gas pipeline through southwest Oregon begged state and federal officials to deny permits for the project on the grounds it would harm waterways, hurt the public interest, increase pollution and contribute to global warming.
Caves expansion worth the wait
The Oregon Caves National Monument receives green light from Congress for a ten-fold expansion. The long-overdue change will fully protect the entire Caves Creek watershed and designate the River Styx, which flows underground through the caves, the nation's first underground Wild and Scenic river.
Most residents speak against gas pipeline
The overwhelming majority of residents at a public hearing on a proposed natural gas pipeline through Southern Oregon spoke against it, but plumbers, electricians and construction workers said the project would bring needed jobs.
