  • Protect Our Backyard Forests in Western Oregon
    The Bureau of Land Management (BLM) has released a long-awaited plan for public forests across 2.6-million acres in western Oregon. The plan looks at six options for managing these federal land that include public forests that border our communities, provide us with clean water, and are home to our favorite places to explore and enjoy. This is an opportunity […]
  • Help Protect Salmon and Oregon's Rivers From Gold Mining
    The Oregon Legislature is currently considering Senate Bill 830, which would protect Oregon's iconic rivers and aquatic species from harmful suction dredge mining.  The bill would greatly limit the practice by eliminating it from critical salmon rivers and streams.  It is a necessary step to safeguard Oregon's treasured waterways from irresponsible […]
  • Don't Let Oregon Privatize the Elliott State Forest
    The Elliott State Forest is threatened, again. Legislators are working to advance a bill that would allow the State Land Board, which is made up of Governor Kate Brown, Secretary of State Jeanne Atkins and Treasurer Ted Wheeler to privatize the Elliott. HB 3533 runs counter to a law that prohibits the disposal of the Elliott and also runs against the will of […]
  • Keep Protections for Gray Wolves in Oregon
    The Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife Commission is considering a proposal to remove the gray wolf from the state Endangered Species Act. Such a move would remove a critical backstop of protection for this species still in the very early stages of recovery. Although wolf recovery to this point has been a tremendous success in Oregon, there are only 77 w […]
  • Conserve the Elliott State Forest
    The state of Oregon is currently soliciting input from stakeholders about a possible new management strategy for the Elliott State Forest. This is an exciting development and an opportune time for you to weigh in and let the Department of State Lands and State Land Board members know you want to see the Elliott's stately forests and clean water protecte […]
  • Keep Federal Wolf Protections
    The US Fish and Wildlife Service is still considering their draft proposal to delist gray wolves in the West with the exception of Mexican wolves in the Southwest.  To make this easier they are also trying to re-write history and the intent of the 1973 Endangered Species Act and the 1978 relisting of the gray wolf throughout most of the United States by rede […]
  • Oppose the Myrtle Creek Clearcutting Plan
    Roseburg BLM is proposing a new massive logging project in the Myrtle Creek watershed southeast of Roseburg. It is near the the Buck Rising sale, the first pilot project testing "variable retention harvest" (VRH), or clearcutting with some retention trees. It didn't work out well for Buck Rising as the sale area had a massive landslide run thr […]
  • WDFW: Give the Roosevelt Elk and Citizens a Fair and Open Process
     WDFW: Give the Roosevelt Elk and Citizens a Fair and Open Process For the past several years Roosevelt elk in southwestern Washington State have been increasingly observed with hoof deformities which prevent them from moving normally and running.   No one knows exact what is causing these troubling deformities and the Washington Department of Fish and Wildl […]
  • Protect the Mighty McKenzie from Reckless Logging
    When most people think of the Mighty McKenzie River east of Eugene, they think about its clear water, recreation opportunities and outstanding fish and wildlife habitat. So why then is the Forest Service proposing clearcuts (euphemistically known as "regeneration harvest") on our public lands in this renowned watershed? The massive Green Mountain P […]
  • 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.
  • 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 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 terminal com […]
  • 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.
  • 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 […]
  • 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 […]
