From Los Padres Forest Watch. Some valuable information here on wildfires and forests that I felt was important enough to repost here.
|Act Now: Tell Congress to Protect Forests Ask your members of Congress to protect Pine Mountain, Mt. Pinos, and other forests on public lands from unnecessary logging. Stop the push to reduce “regulatory hurdles” for projects proposed under the guise of wildfire mitigation, forest “health,” and “resilience” that can harm forests and put species and our climate at risk. We don’t have to sell out our forests to protect our communities.|
Contact your members of Congress.
