Protect the Smith’s sister river – the Chetco!- (ARCHIVED ACTION)

SPEAK ON BEHALF OF CHETCO PROTECTION!

The Smith and the Chetco share similar geology, extraordinary plant diversity, and are two of the premier Wild and Scenic Rivers in the Klamath-Siskiyou bioregion. Fishery scientists emphasize that these rivers provide our best opportunity for recovery of the once abundant runs of salmon and steelhead —- and today they are also an important destination for salmon and steelhead fishermen, and recreationalists.

These watersheds also hold great cultural significance for our Tribal partners — Elk Valley Rancheria and the Tolowa Dee-ni’ Nation.

Our best foresters and watershed scientists confirm that post-fire salvage logging is highly disruptive of the natural recovery processes.

Yet the Forest Service is proposing extensive salvage logging within the footprint of the 2017 Chetco Bar Fire. Please tell the Forest Service that salmon need habitat protection — not destructive salvage logging!

To learn more please read a fishery/conservation group joint letter here.

Tell the Forest Service that you support protection of the vital salmon fisheries on the Chetco River.
