Action Needed Now
to Ensure California
Pilot projects soon to begin!
Greater public role needed
for oversight, transparency!
California's forests need your help!
In January we urged you to take action to insure that California's once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to reform the state's logging rules gets done right. We're getting closer and closer to locking in real improvements in California's timber practices-- but we need for you to speak up once again TODAY to keep agency officials headed in the right direction!
The starting point toward these goals, however, is a set of as many as four pilot projects—taking place in a diverse set of forested areas around the state. Forests Forever has long pushed for these pilot projects. And thanks to our members speaking up for them the pilots are now funded and in the planning stages! The first is set to roll out in the first half of 2016.
But there are still problems. As currently envisioned by the state Natural Resources Agency, the pilot projects appear to be under the excessive control of "the usual suspects" in the timber industry and the logging agency officials who too often do the industry's bidding—all this to the detriment of the environmental values we hold dear in our forests!
Please send a letter TODAY to key officials, demanding answers to key questions!
For the forests,
