  • Help Prevent Commercial Logging Near Breitenbush
    Breitenbush Hot Springs Retreat and Conference Center and the surrounding forest areas hold a special place in the hearts of Cascadia Wildlands.  We have cherished this place and have regularly visited the resort, friends' summer cabins and the surrounding old-growth forests to rejuvenate ourselves.   Therefore, Cascadia Wildlands was especially concern […]
  • Petition to Governor Kate Brown: Keep the Elliott State Forest in Public Ownership
    Oregon recently decided to sell the approximately 82,500 acres of Common School Fund lands in the Elliott State Forest. A huge chunk of the overall 93,000-acre Elliott State Forest, this decision puts this temperate rainforest owned and enjoyed by the public at risk of being privatized and closed to public access. The Elliott, nestled in Oregon's Coast […]
  • Ensure Science-Driven Management of Oregon's Wildlife
    The Oregon Fish and Wildlife Commission makes state wildlife decisions, and Cascadia Wildlands has been working tirelessly to get the Commission to focus on science-driven conservation. Recently, the Commission heeded Cascadia's recommendations and refused to expand the spring bear hunt in Oregon that placed mother bears and their cubs at risk because t […]
  • Keep Federal Wolf Protections
    The US Fish and Wildlife Service is still considering their draft proposal to delist gray wolves in the West with the exception of Mexican wolves in the Southwest.  To make this easier they are also trying to re-write history and the intent of the 1973 Endangered Species Act and the 1978 relisting of the gray wolf throughout most of the United States by rede […]
  • Protect the Mighty McKenzie from Reckless Logging
    When most people think of the Mighty McKenzie River east of Eugene, they think about its clear water, recreation opportunities and outstanding fish and wildlife habitat. So why then is the Forest Service proposing clearcuts (euphemistically known as "regeneration harvest") on our public lands in this renowned watershed? The massive Green Mountain P […]
  • Stop the Coyote Killing Derbies
    Coyote killing derbies continue unabated in Cascadia, and it is past time state wildlife commissions begin to reign in these killing contests. These events constitute vigilante wildlife management that are based on dated anti-predator prejudices unsupported by modern science and do not reflect any appreciation of our current understanding of the ecological v […]
  • Help Save Our Wild Salmon Heritage: Ban Suction Dredge Mining
    Threats to imperiled salmon runs are plentiful: dams, logging, roadbuilding, hatcheries. You can add one more to the list: suction dredge mining for gold in prime salmon spawning streams. This reckless activity typically involves using a gasoline-powered motor with a long vacuum hose connected to it that sucks up the riverbottom gravels in an attempt to loca […]
  • Speak Up for Endangered Rainforests and Critters of the Elliott
    On February 9, Governor Kulongoski, Secretary Brown and Treasurer Westlund, the three members of Oregon's Land Board, will likely decide on the future of the Elliott State Forest, a coastal rainforest southeast of Reedsport. According to Oregon's Constitution, the Elliott is intended to generate revenue for K-12 public schools. For decades, the rai […]
  • Thank Lawmakers for Holding Devil's Staircase Hearings
    On June 16 Representative Peter DeFazio (D-OR) and Senator Ron Wyden (D-OR) introduced companion legislation into Congress that would create the 26,650-acre Devil's Staircase Wilderness in the central Oregon Coast Range east of Reedsport. This was in response to the overwhelming grassroots campaign Cascadia Wildlands and our conservation allies have bee […]
  • Stop the Hunts, Protect the Gray Wolf Today
    On August 20, Cascadia Wildlands and our conservation colleagues, represented by Earthjustice, filed for a preliminary injunction to halt the immediate slaughter of up to 330 gray wolves in Idaho and Montana. In April 2009, the Obama administration finalized a plan initiated by the Bush administration to delist gray wolves from the Endangered Species Act and […]
