Protect the North Fork of the Smith River!
We have an opportunity to protect the North Fork of the Smith River and its tributaries in Oregon, and you can help. The Oregon Water Resources Department recently proposed a rule that is huge step forward in protecting the in-stream uses of these waters—namely fish life, wildlife, and recreation.
Wild Forests of the Applegate at Risk
The BLM is accepting public comment on the Nedsbar Forest Management Project. Get your comments in today!
"Regeneration logging" is clear-cutting
The BLM's plans to remove ancient forests serving as spotted owl critical habitat and replace them with dense tree plantations that increase fire hazard is a big step backwards for wildlife and watershed values.
Protect our Forests, Stop Clear-Cutting!
Send a letter to your representatives urging them to uphold protections for our forests when considering the BLM’s proposed plan for Western Oregon.
Wolves, Wolverines and Fishers: The Good, Bad, and the Future
News alert to what is happening with some of our favorite carnivores in the Klamath-Siskiyou

Sign on to the public comment asking the Oregon Environmental Quality Commission, to initiate a rulemaking process to consider designating the North Fork Smith and all of its tributaries and wetlands as Outstanding Resource Waters.
Westside Salvage Logging
Timber planners in the Klamath National Forest are set to auction off fire-burned forests in the Klamath-Siskiyou Mountains in the first of many "Westside Fire Salvage" timber sales starting March 17th. Learn more, and take action to protect these forests today!

Public Lands Takeover? No Thanks!
It's not just militants that want to give away public lands. U.S. Congressman Greg Walden recently proposed legislation to give away over a quarter-million acres of National Forests in southern Oregon and northern California.

Take Action: Please sign this petition and show support for the pending South West Oregon Watershed and Salmon Protection Act to protect the Kalmiopsis Rivers from nickel strip mining!
Tell Kate Brown to Protect Southern Oregon's Streams
Tell Governor Kate Brown to reject the Oregon Board of Forestry decision that the Siskiyou streams shouldn’t be exempt from the statewide stream protections. The science behind climate change makes it clear that our water sources are more critical than ever.
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.
