Clearcut the Siskiyou Crest? No way!
Stand With Us to Protect the Siskiyou Crest
In the coming days and weeks, you're going to be hearing a lot about "salvage" logging clearcuts that are being proposed on public lands throughout the Klamath Siskiyous following last summer's fire season.
One of the most outrageous of these logging proposals is the "Seiad-Horse" timber sale at Cook and Green Pass in the Siskiyou Mountains. Klamath National Forest timber planners hope to clearcut over 1,200 acres of Late-Successional Old-Growth Reserves.
Please take a moment to submit a letter to the Forest Service
The clearcutting and road construction would:
Increase sediment loading in key Klamath River tributary streams
"Take" (AKA kill) Northern spotted owls
Harm Coho, Chinook and Steelhead fisheries
Reduce fire resiliency through establishment of second-growth tree plantations
