Help Protect America's National Forests
The Obama administration is developing new National Forest Management Act regulations governing the management of forests, watersheds and wildlife across the entire 193-million-acre National Forest System in the United States and Puerto Rico.
Unfortunately, the substance of the Obama administration's proposed rule fails to live up to its lofty rhetoric. Instead of ensuring strong, enforceable protections for our forests, watersheds and wildlife, the proposed rule gives bureaucrats the latitude to ignore science and to prioritize resource extraction over the conservation of species and ecosystems.
We need your help urging the Obama administration to correct course. Please send a letter and, if you can, attend a public meeting urging the administration and the Forest Service to enact strong, consistent protections for our nation's forests, watersheds and wildlife.
You can send a letter using the form below. Letters must be sent by May 16th, 2011. Meetings are being held around the country -- view meeting dates and locations here. Learn more about the proposed regulations here.
