Stop Senator Wyden's Ancient Forests Logging Bills

We, the undersigned, implore the Democratic Party controlled Senate to withdraw Senate Bills 1301 and 1784 created by Senator Wyden that targets Oregon's last ancient forests upon nearly 10 million acres of our National Forests and BLM O & C lands.

Why is this important?

Senate bills 1301 and 1784 would undermine the Northwest Forest Plan, the Endangered Species Act (ESA), and the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) across Oregon's National Forests and BLM O & C lands to prop up "too big to fail" mega tree fiber operations owned by some of the wealthiest families in Oregon. Senator Wyden's goal is to more than double current tree fiber extraction levels upon 10 million acres of publicly owned federal lands throughout Oregon. SB 1301 would sunset in 2029 and SB 1784 has no sunset date. Current laws are already failing to recover 3 iconic endangered Northwest forest species - the Coho salmon, marbled murrelet and the Northern spotted owl - from extinction. Senator Wyden's tree fiber extraction bills, 1301 and 1784, could place the nail in the coffins of these 3 ESA listed species and Oregon's last stands of ancient forests.

The decimation of public lands, however, threatens the wealth of diversity and uniqueness of these threatened ecosystems. We must protect these old growth areas, not only for the future of our economies, but for the lives and live...
