For the first time since 2000, an inventoried roadless area on a
National Forest will be logged. We just received word that John West
and Silver Creek Timber will begin logging Mike's Gulch on the
Siskiyou-Rogue River National Forest in the Biscuit Burn on Monday
Please alert all interested persons and encourage everyone to attend a
critical protest at the Medford Forest Service office 333 W. Eighth
St. on Monday August 7th at noon.
The Bush Administration is seeking to undo the most popular and
important piece of forest protection regulation we have - the roadless
conservation rule. It starts in our backyard and threatens up to 58.5
million acres of the most pristine public lands in the nation.
A more thorough action alert is forthcoming, but please get this date
on as many calendars as possible. A big showing on the 7th will bring
this issue to the attention of the nation. The forest needs people
power and it needs it now!
