Despite years of abuse from logging, ill-placed road construction and indiscriminate damage from Off-Road Vehicles (ORVs) the Beegum Creek Watershed in the Yolla Bolla Ranger District of the Shasta-Trinity National Forest still provides essential habitat for at-risk Spring Chinook salmon.

To their credit, the Forest Service is attempting to fix the mistakes of the past by repairing, decommissioning and closing old logging roads that are literally falling into waterbodies and dumping sediment into fish habitat. The agency is also proposing to rein-in uncontrolled ORV use that has scarred erosive slopes and trashed riparian areas throughout the watershed.

Unfortunately a small minority of forest visitors see Beegum Creek as their private ORV playground to be trashed rather than as an important watershed for salmon recovery that belongs to all Americans.

Please take a moment to send an e-letter to the Forest Service letting them know that you support their efforts to restore the important values of clean water and salmon habitat in the Beegum Creek Watershed.
