Take Action Now! Protect the Upper Mad River Watershed
Please take a moment to let the Forest Service know that you are concerned about the effects the proposed Beaverslide Timber Sale could have on the Upper Mad River and habitat for endangered species.
The Beaverslide Timber Sale is located just south of Ruth Lake in the Mad River watershed. The Six Rivers National Forest is planning to commercially log nearly 2000 acres approximately 560 acres with ground based equipment, 1350 acres of skyline and 380 acres by helicopter and would extract 22.4 million board feet of timber. EPIC with Conservation Congress appealed the project months ago and in response the USFS has just issued a Final Supplemental Environmental Impact Statement. A few changes were made but may not be significant enough to protect the wildlife and watershed.
