On October 1st, nonprofit law firm Advocates for the West filed the opening brief in our lawsuit challenging the US Forest Service’s “Hungry Ridge” and “End of the World” logging projects.
The lawsuit is one step of many FOC staff and membership have taken to defend the forests bridging the Salmon and Clearwater basins. This region of the Nez Perce supports critical habitat for salmon, steelhead, fisher, and grizzly bears. These projects (separated only by the Doc Denny timber sale) propose to log 26,000 acres, including significant acreage in old growth forest, supersized clearcuts, and even abut the Gospel Hump Wilderness.
Luckily, for steelhead, grizzlies, ancient firs and spruces, our climate, and recreationists, we are fighting to keep this damage from happening.
If you can, chip in a $5 monthly donation to support our fight to keep the Nez Perce Forest wild. We can’t afford to lose, and consistent funding keeps us consistently in the ring.
You can read more about the details of the project here.
Thank you for your continued support. Let’s remind the government that our wildlands should stay wild.
