New Biscuit Camp Established! More Logging to Begin Soon!

The Siskiyou Summer push is on! Logging companies are gearing up to punch into several Biscuit old-growth sales as we type. Logging is imminent; we need your help!
Come join us at our community mobilization & education camp dedicated to protection of our public lands. Located right in the heart of what's at stake, forest defenders, community activists, and all who love wilderness are coming together again to organize. At the camp we will be going on hikes, teaching each other skills in areas such as: direct action, community organizing, climbing, and local ecology. Everyone is invited - come out for the day, a few days, or a week or more to help protect our endangered forests.

For those who have been involved in this movement already, it is important at this point to remember that there is MUCH left to save. We are still waiting for rulings on lawsuits that affect many of the impending timber sales. Stall time right now is really valuable - come help, have fun, and defend our forests!

What to bring: yourself, prepared to camp. We will have some food to share, but if you are able please bring some as well.

When: Now!

Directions: From the I-5, take the Merlin exit (It's north of the Grant's Pass exits, and south of Wolf Creek & Sunny Valley exits). Head west through the town of Merlin about 11 miles on Galice Rd. towards Galice, then turn left onto Briggs Rd. (also known as FS 25. It's about 2 miles after you cross the Rogue River). After turning onto Briggs Rd, go 10 1/2 miles to the detour turn, but instead of turning right, keep going straight for 1 more mile, then take a right onto FS 100. A few hundred yards down FS 100, take a right onto FS 600. Camp is at the end of FS 600!

(Please Note: This is a mobile camp, and the location may change depending on the needs of the forest. Updates will be posted at www.rogueimc.org, portland.indymedia.org, and www.cascadiarising.org. Or just give us a call.)
