  • Take Action for Clean Water and Salmon
    The Oregon Department of Environmental Quality is currently seeking comment on conditions placed on suction dredge mining. This process is proceeding concurrently with a stakeholder effort outlined by our successful legislation last year that is working to modernized the rules that govern the reckless practice of suction dredge mining in Oregon. Suction dred […]
  • Federal Court Orders to Curtail Illegal Grazing Must be Enforced
    Federal Court Orders to Curtail Illegal Grazing Must be Enforced In March and April of this year, the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) initiated the process of implementing a federal court order to remove 700-900 head of cattle owned by Clark County Nevada rancher Cliven Bundy that have been grazing illegally on a combination of BLM and National Park Service […]
  • Safeguard the Tongass Rainforest
    Help stop the reckless Big Thorne old-growth timber sale and embrace the economic pillars of subsistence, fishing, and tourism on the Tongass National Forest.
  • BLM Comments on Planning Criteria
    The BLM is asking for your input in developing new plans that will guide their management of 2.6 million acres of public lands. You remember a few years ago the BLM did the Western Oregon Plan Revisions (WOPR) that tried to allow too much clearcutting of older forests. Since the WOPR was unworkable, the BLM withdrew that plan. Now they are back with more ide […]
  • Ron Wyden should not applaud LNG
    On March 23, 2014, the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) gave approval to export natural gas to countries like China from the Jordan Cove LNG terminal proposed for Coos Bay. This is only one of many permits that Jordan Cove has yet to get. The big one, from the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC), won’t be decided until late in 2014 or early 2015. None […]
  • 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 […]
  • Ask the Governor To Oppose LNG Exports From Oregon
    An energy company from Calgary, Canada is targeting southern Oregon to expand their natural gas export market to Asia. They are currently asking the U.S. Government for the right of eminent domain to use Oregonians private property for the 230-mile long pipeline they need to transport their gas to Coos Bay. There, they hope to build the Jordan Cove export te […]
  • Safeguard the Tongass Rainforest
    Help stop the reckless Big Thorne old-growth timber sale and embrace the economic pillars of subsistence, fishing, and tourism on the Tongass National Forest.
  • Transfer 2,714 Acres of the Elliott State Forest into Conservation
    The State Land Board, made up of Governor John Kitzhaber, Secretary Kate Brown, and Treasurer Ted Wheeler, made a decision on December 10 to sell 2,714 acres of the Elliott State Forest by competitive bid. Since a successful legal challenge thwarted clearcutting in imperiled marbled murrelet habitat on the Elliott, the agency decided to sell these 5 parcels, […]
  • Protect Our Backyard Forests and Clean Water Legacy in Western Oregon
    On November 26, Senator Ron Wyden (D-OR) released county funding legislation that will affect over two-million acres of public forestlands in western Oregon. And in early February, the senator held a hearing on this bill. Cascadia Wildlands is disappointed in that the bill weakens key safeguards of the landmark Northwest Forest Plan, like the streamside rese […]
  • 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 […]
  • Revise BLM Plans to Protect Clean Water and Older Forests
    The western Oregon Bureau of Land Management (BLM) is current soliciting public input on revisions to the plans that guide forest management across 2.6 million acres in western Oregon. Recall, the BLM did that a few years back, known as the Western Oregon Plan Revisions (or WOPR), and it failed due to its emphasis on ramping up clearcutting in old-growth and […]
  • Halt the Clearcutting of Up to One Million Acres of Forestland in Western Oregon
    In March, 2012, Representative Peter DeFazio, Greg Walden and Kurt Schrader released a draft of the O&C Trust, Conservation, and Jobs Act. The bill would split the 2.6 million acres of western Oregon BLM lands into a "timber trust" and a "conservation trust." The timber trust lands would be logged to raise revenue for Oregon's st […]
  • Tell Kitzhaber to defend Oregon from a dirty energy bait-and-switch
    Southern Oregon has been threatened with a natural as pipeline that needs a 100’ wide clearcut for 230 miles, taking private property through eminent domain, and taking the homes of our wildlife through corporate greed. The proposed pipeline will run from the Ruby pipeline near Klamath Falls, to the Pacific Ocean, near Coos Bay, and the site of a proposed Li […]
  • Petition to Create a Citizen's Oversight Committee for the Trans-Alaska Pipeline
    The 800-mile long Trans-Alaska Pipeline is getting old, lacks critical maintenance and threatens the integrity of the world renowned Copper River watershed, famed for its salmon runs. While Big Oil sucks the last oil out of the Arctic patch and sends it south, the corroding pipeline threatens the Copper with the risk of oil spills. That is why we ask you to […]
  • 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 […]
