Thursday's Cascadia Forest Revue: Shock and Awe Logging coming to the Siskiyous

The Bush Forest Service is planning to log up to a billion board feet of trees from sensitive, Biscuit-fire affected forests in southwestern Oregon's Siskiyou Wild Rivers area. This extreme logging proposal is unlike anything else in living memory - amounting to about quadruple the combined logging on all National Forests in Washington and Oregon last year.
Hey folks,

There has been lots of media attention recently on the brewing "Showdown in the Siskiyou" over plans to log sensitive Biscuit fire-affected areas. This no normal timber sale. In fact, this could be the single largest logging operation in the history of our National Forests. Monstrous, extreme, "shock and awe logging"...call it what you like, but this is the nation's next big conservation fight - and it's in our backyard.

Bring a friend and spread the word - we'll see you at the Revue!

Cascadia Forest Revue:
The Largest Logging Project in Modern History!

Thursday, November 20th - 8:00 PM
It's a Beautiful Pizza, 3341 SE Belmont, Portland
Sliding scale donation ($3+) welcome, not required

The Bush Forest Service is planning to log up to a billion board feet of trees from sensitive, Biscuit-fire affected forests in southwestern Oregon's Siskiyou Wild Rivers area. This extreme logging proposal is unlike anything else in living memory - amounting to about quadruple the combined logging on all National Forests in Washington and Oregon last year.

This scheme would drive chainsaws into the heart of the largest unprotected roadless areas on the Pacific coast between Canada and Mexico, threatening tens of thousands of acres of wild roadless forests. Quickly becoming the most controversial forest battle in the nation, your help is needed to stop this monstrous, extreme logging scheme.

In an interactive slideshow, Rolf Skar with the Siskiyou Project will introduce you to the Siskiyou Wild Rivers area, explore fire ecology and share ways you can help save this national treasure!
