Siuslaw National Forest:
At Risk

2024 will see the first major change to the Northwest Forest Plan (NWFP) for forests managed by the Forest Service. Between now and June, we must prepare a huge coastal response to any NWFP amendment that opens the door to cutting the Siuslaw National Forest’s remaining mature trees. This June the Forest Service will release their draft amendment. Don’t think for a moment that the huge mill owners don’t have their sights on the Siuslaw’s big trees. We must prevent an amendment that opens the door to cutting mature coastal forest. Go to Siuslaw Action Page and learn what you can do.

Communities & the Living Ocean

Protecting & preserving communities in the era of climate change.

Coastal communities depend on the beauty of the coast and the bounty of the ocean. We are working to protect the ocean by conserving coastal resources, supporting the state's marine research program for near shore reserves and educating about the impact of the climate crisis on the oceans of the world.

Speaking Truth to Power

“climate change beyond the next few decades will depend primarily on the amount of greenhouse (heat-trapping) gases emitted globally and on the remaining uncertainty in the sensitivity of Earth’s climate to those emissions (very high confidence). With significant reductions in the emissions of greenhouse gases, the global annually averaged temperature rise could be limited to 3.6°F (2°C) or less. Without major reductions in these emissions, the increase in annual average global temperatures relative to preindustrial times could reach 9°F (5°C) or more by the end of this century (high confidence).”
