Covering more than half a million acres in the Oregon Coast Range, three of our most precious state forests and their wildlife are facing a new threat.
After years of abusive logging practices have almost destroyed old-growth forests, the state is drafting two flawed new plans for the Elliott, Tillamook and Clatsop state forests.
These plans don't do nearly enough for struggling Oregon wildlife like spotted owls, marbled murrelets, coho salmon and red tree voles.
Tell Gov. Kate Brown to push for improving the plans, including three specific changes that will help them properly protect species, watersheds and the climate.
