Lawsuit filed to stop old-growth logging in the Rogue Valley

The BLM is returning to the bad ol' days of old-growth logging. Together, we can stop the Lower Grave timber sale!

The latest timber sale from the Medford BLM looks like it was designed by timber barons in the last century. It includes old-growth logging. It logs stream buffers. It harms salmon, spotted owls, and other rare wildlife. It increases fire danger!

Grave Creek
This is what is at stake.

The government admits it all in their very own documents and is still going ahead with it all. This project lines the pockets of big timber, and it's illegal. 

With your help KS Wild is challenging this illegal, unwise timber grab!

KS Wild just filed legal papers today. We are hopeful that a federal judge will put a quick stop to this madness. The old-growth forests of Grave Creek and the Rogue Valley are no place for clear-cut logging. 

We are hopeful that someday the Medford BLM will finally focus on careful thinning around homes to reduce wildfire risk on our communities.

They're not there yet. Until then, you can count on KS Wild to stand up for wildlife, watersheds, and our communities.
