Help respond to Rep. Brian Baird (D)'s pro-salvage logging article in the Oregonian

We need your help in sending letters to the editor pointing out that Baird's post-disturbance logging legislation is harmful to fish, wildlife, and overall forest recovery. At the bottom of this alert is a press release about 169 scientists from across the country who have come out against this legislation.
