The plan focuses on strategies to ensure that Oregon will meet its greenhouse gas reduction goals over the next decade, while strengthening our economy.

PROTECT OREGON'S STATE FORESTS!

On July 26, the Oregon Board of Forestry will be voting on whether to create new 'high value conservation areas' on state forest lands. The creation of protected conservation areas is a key way to protect clean water, salmon, older forest habitat and recreational opportunities on state forests. Make your voice heard by signing our petition in support of state forest conservation areas.

Please contact northwest Oregon forest organizer Chris Smith to find out how you can help with the campaign and participate in the Board of Forestry's upcoming meeting.
