Calls Needed to Stop Biscuit Roadless Logging

Urgent - Calls Needed to Stop Biscuit Roadless Logging

Roadless logging in the Siskiyou Wild Rivers Area of Southwestern Oregon is becoming even more imminent. The Siskiyou National Forest may auction the Mike's Gulch timber sale, located within the South Kalmiopsis Roadless Area, within weeks.

The Mike's Gulch timber sale is the first roadless sale to be unleashed in the Biscuit Logging Project. It will virtually clearcut 335 contiguous acres of roadless forest in the South Kalmiopsis Roadless Area located near the spectacular Kalmiopsis Wilderness. This area also contains old growth forest reserves that are supposed to be protected from logging for sensitive species.

The 2002 Biscuit Fire in the Siskiyou Wild Rivers Area in Southern Oregon was a natural event that affected the untrammeled, biologically rich Siskiyou Wild Rivers landscape that centers around the 179,000-acre Kalmiopsis Wilderness in the southwestern corner of Oregon. The roadless wildlands around the Kalmiopsis Wilderness include the South and North Kalmiopsis Inventoried Roadless Areas. At 104,620 acres and 88,852 acres, they are the first and third largest unprotected roadless forests in Oregon. This large roadless landscape is the watershed for three National Wild & Scenic Rivers and five candidate Wild & Scenic Rivers, containing some of the most valuable wild salmon & steelhead habitat from the Olympics to Baja.

Calls are needed TODAY to Oregon Governor Ted Kulongoski, urging him to take action to protect roadless Siskiyou forests.

Call Governor Kulongoski at (503) 378-4582, and tell him that you care about the Siskiyou Wild Rivers Area, that this is a special place of national significance, and urge him to publicly oppose the logging of roadless forests in the Siskiyou and demand that the Forest Service NOT auction roadless logging sales like the Mike's Gulch timber sale.
