Why defend the Mckenzie? 02.Jun.2005 16:23

3000 arces of ancient and native forests are slated to be cut in the Mckenzie Watershed, projects previously planned and in the process of implementation. Water quality and recreational opportunitys are being degraded and it is time for the Mckenzie Ranger District to buy back contracts for all logging projects involving anything but plantation thinning.

Too many old-growth trees were cut last year in the Mckenzie District, it's time for things to change.
