Mature & Old Growth Forests on federal lands capture and store vast amounts of carbon pollution. Maintaining old forests must be a foundational rule in our climate policy.
Take Action to permanently protect mature and old-growth federal forests from logging! The Forest Service and Bureau of Land Management are currently seeking public input on new national rules the agencies may adopt to better manage our public forests. We need your voice!
The BLM have launched a 75-day public comment period to gather feedback about important ways it should balance its mission to focus on public land conservation and protection. This rule-making process gives the BLM an opportunity to rebalance its priorities and also incorporate co-stewardship and co-management of lands with Tribal nations. This is a once-in-a-generation opportunity to help shape the future for BLM-managed public lands, our communities, and wildlife!
