  • Help Defend Old-Growth Forests from Trump's Congress
    The horrible forest legislation that we have been anticipating from Congress with the election of Trump is here.  The “Resilient Federal Forests Act” (HR 2936) is quickly heading to a vote before the House of Representatives after narrowly passing out of the House Natural Resources Committee through a party-line vote. The bill guts federal environmental prot […]
  • Take action to defend the Cascade-Siskiyou National Monument
    The Trump administration and its allies in Congress are coming after our national monuments through an executive order "review," and they want to shrink or all-out revoke 27 of these unique public landscapes so Big Industry can mine, log, graze and drill them unabated. Locally, the recently expanded, 114,000-acre Cascade-Siskiyou National Monument […]
  • Protect Cascadia's Tongass Rainforest
    Alaska's Tongass National Forest is the best of what's left of Cascadia's old-growth temperate rainforest. Sadly, the Tongass remains ground-zero for old-growth clearcutting. While there has been talk about a transition away from old-growth logging, the towering rainforests continue to fall, and huge new clearcuts are still being planned. Wors […]
  • Deadman's Folley Scoping Comments
    The Roseburg BLM is in the first stages of preparing the Deadman's Folley timber sale, along Elk Creek and highway 38 on the lower Umpqua River. Rather than looking to restoration opportunities or low-intensity thinning of tree farms, the BLM wants to clearcut as much as possible. Under the new BLM management plan, they even want to log within stream-si […]
  • Strengthen Oregon's Wolf Plan!
    The Department of Fish and Wildlife has recently released its draft changes to Oregon's Wolf Conservation and Management Plan as part of its five-year review process.  The plan contains critical protections for Oregon's wolves and the required steps for successful recovery of the species. These plan's revisions are especially critical given Or […]
  • 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 […]
  • 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 […]
  • Urge Congress to Protect Devil's Staircase
    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.
