Protect Oregon's Rivers
The Clean Water Act works to reduce pollution from factories, mines and cities to safe levels, so that our rivers and streams are swimmable, fishable and drinkable. While not perfect, the Clean Water Act has dramatically reduced pollution from many sources in the last 30 years. Water quality trading could fundamentally change how Clean Water Act permits work.
Balance Needed To Protect Oregon Wolves
Oregon's Fish and Wildlife Commission is tasked with conserving our state's most vulnerable animals, including wolves. Tell Governor Brown to support Commissioners like Michael Finley who bring critical conservation and scientific expertise to decisions on fish and wildlife management.
Urge BLM To Protect Old-Growth Forests, Not Clear-Cut Them
In southern Oregon, our BLM Backyard Forests are prized for ancient forests, clean water and popular recreation spots. Unfortunately, in the last year the Medford BLM has bowed to pressure from the timber industry and plans to resume clearcutting ancient forests in the Lower Grave and Big Butte timber sales.
Make Recreation A Priority, Start With The Middle Fork Applegate River Footbridge
Deep in the heart of the Klamath-Siskiyou, the Middle Fork Applegate Trail is suffering from neglect including the loss of a key footbridge over the river. Right now the Forest Service is proposing to replace the existing road bridge over the Middle Fork Applegate River on Forest Service Road 1040 that leads to the trailhead. Will you join us in asking the Forest Service to replace the Middle Fork Applegate River footbridge in addition to the 1040 road bridge and commit to maintaining all their trails?
Thank You for Working to Protect Kalmiopsis Rivers
Exciting news! Our elected officials have taken important steps towards protecting the pristine rivers of southwestern Oregon and northwestern California from the threats of nickel strip mining. Please take a moment to thank Senators Wyden and Merkley and Representatives DeFazio of Oregon and Huffman of California for introducing the Southwest Oregon Watershed and Salmon Protection Act.
Protect Our BLM Backyard Forests
The Bureau of Land Management (BLM) just released a long-awaited plan for public forests found throughout Western Oregon. The plan looks at six options for managing federal land that includes special places like the Wild Rogue River, Applegate Valley, and Illinois Valley. Unfortunately, most alternatives in the plan would slash streamside buffers and clearcut thousands of acres of BLM land.
URGENT: Marble Mountains Targeted, You Can Help!
Timber planners on the Klamath National Forest are exploiting last summer’s wildfires to push an extreme logging proposal that calls for clearcutting old-growth reserves in key salmon strongholds. Please stand with conservation groups, native tribes, watershed councils and fire ecologists to oppose the Forest Service rush to log at any cost.
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.
URGENT: 40,000 Acre Timber Sale On The Klamath!
The wild forests and watersheds of the Klamath have never needed your help more than now. With the smoke still clearing from this summer's wildfires, the Klamath National Forest is already pushing an extreme logging proposal that would clearcut thousands of acres of recovering post-fire forests, old-growth reserves, and roadless wildlands.
Tell Wyden: Protect Oregon's BLM Forests
Senator Wyden is moving sweeping forestry legislation in the current 'lame duck' session of Congress. The bill would overhaul management on 2.6 million acres of federal public land, deciding the fate of many of southwest Oregon's forests, rivers, and wild areas.
Stop the Nedsbar Timber Sale
The Applegate Valley has a growing recreation and tourism economy. The proposed Nedsbar timber sale would log 3,400 acres in an area proposed for protection, increase fire hazard, and harm clean water that supplies family farms. Speak up to prevent the BLM from destroying the last, best older forests in the Applegate Valley.
Smith River Deserves Protection, Not Strip Mining
The Smith River Basin in southwest Oregon is renowned for clear waters and world-class salmon runs. Help prevent a proposed nickel mine from strip mining about 4,000 acres of wilderness quality public lands, polluting downstream waters, and harming one of the most wild and pristine watersheds on the west coast.
Protect Salmon River Old-Growth From Post-Fire Logging
The science is clear: post-fire logging harms soil, wildlife, and clean water. Join KS Wild in urging the Klamath National Forest to protect some of the best steelhead streams on the mid-Klamath River from destructive logging.
Support Responsible Forest Service Road Management
The Forest Service's 380,000 mile road system is in desperate need of maintenance to prevent erosion that muddies streams and kills fish. Urge your Senators and Representatives to support right-sizing the Forest Service road system with responsible management to protect public lands and save taxpayers money.
Last Chance for Smith River Wildlands!
Please support protection of the wildlands and wildflowers in the Smith River National Recreation Area.
No Joke, Gas Exports A Bad Deal
Gas company executives want to make huge profits exporting US gas at the expense of southern Oregon's landowners, families, rivers, forests, and climate. Tell Senator Wyden gas exports are a bad deal for Oregon.
Speak Up For Trail Creek
The BLM is deciding between several alternatives for how to implement the Trail Creek Timber Sale. Will Trail Creek get the restoration it needs, or more clearcuts? Tell the BLM that you support restoration, rather than exploitation in this at-risk watershed.
Protect Meadows And Creeks In California's Eddy Mountains
The creeks that flow from the Eddy Mountains in northern California are threatened by erosion from logging roads and increasing off-road vehicle use. The Shasta-Trinity National Forest is poised to take positive steps to protect creeks and meadows, but they need to hear a strong message of support.
Speak Up For Rare Frogs
This summer KS Wild was shocked to learn that cattle grazing in southern Oregon’s Winema National Forest trampled frogs in their small stream habitats. Your help is needed now to stop a proposed expansion in public lands cattle grazing from damaging even more stream and wetland areas home to our amphibian friends.
Salmon River Wildlands Threatened By Clearcut Logging!
Ask the Forest Service to focus on post-fire forest restoration rather than forest exploitation in this special place.
