This summer, KS Wild is providing several ways for you to be more informed about wildfires in our region. Find resources on our Fire Dashboard, the workers who make our forests more resilient, and our Summer Speaker Series on Fire Management at REI.
We need more restoration in our public forests. Public land managers should be promoting projects that encompass a wide range of restorative measures like prescribed fire and thinning timber plantations. They should not be promoting timber sales that will increase fire hazard.
The Karuk Tribe and Salmon River Restoration Council have petitioned Cal. Fish and Game to place the Klamath-Trinity Spring Chinook (king salmon) on the state Endangered Species List. Support this action that would afford new protections and opportunities to help fund habitat restoration projects.
The Upper Applegate Watershed Project, located near Ruch, OR. holds promise as a blueprint to: restore forests and streams, protect communities from wildfire, and prepare our landscapes for climate change. Please take action.
The tragic Camp Fire in the Sierra Nevada is another in a series of extreme wildfires that have taken lives and leave us looking for answers. In times like these, it's important to care for each other and do our best to prepare for the future.
