In the meantime, call Senator Gordon Smith at (202) 224-3753 to express your OUTRAGE that the Forest Service is allowing logging to begin while the scientific review team is currently studying Eagle. Request that he join the other members of Oregon's congressional delegation calling for an immediate suspension of logging in the Eagle Creek watershed.

Also, please contact Governor Kitzhaber at (503) 378-3111 (simply leave a message after the prompt) about halting operations until the study is complete.

Also contact Jim Furnish, the Deputy Chief of the National Forest Service and ask him to intervene and stop the cutting. He can be reached at 202-205-1523. Don't let them pass the buck back to the Mt. Hood Forest Level. This has gone way past that already. See Wyden's letter. For more info about the review team please click here.
