The Medicine Lake Caldera is a magical area held sacred to many of the Northern California and Southern Oregon tribes and a rare refuge for the wild in the scared landscape of the Southern Cascades and valleys of the Klamath Projects.
Located about 30 miles east of Mt. Shasta, Medicine Lake is the largest shield volcanic in the Cascade Range and host roadless areas, rare carnivore species, lush lakes and springs, vocalic flows and lava tubes, and many ancient forests. It feeds the largest spring system in California.
Partially due to the "energy crisis" they helped manufactured, Calpine corporation has approval to begin turn this landscape into an
industrial wasteland of power plants, toxic slumps, large roads and at least 38 miles of clearcuts for 1000 feet wide power lines. This will all be paid for with taxpayer money and sold back to us as "green energy". With illegal leases on 66 miles (134,000 acres) they could soon cover good portions of 3 different National Forest with their toxic plants. The decision to preserve the Telephone Flat portion of the area due to its location on a National Historical Register site named for Native American spiritual values and ecological impacts was overridden by the Bush administration due to their new "Energy Policy" soon to be the "Energy Bill".
After the hike there will be a short meeting for people interested in helping to create an anti-Calpine corporate campaign. Calpine is
multi-national. It is the fasted growing energy company in the US and is threatening many other wild places and communities. It is time to hold them responsible.
