Wild Klamath-Siskiyou

Big news today! The Oregon Caves Revitalization Act unanimously passed the US Senate! The bill would designate the first underground Wild and Scenic River, protect Bigelow lakes (picture here) and boost the local economy. Now the US House needs to act. http://tinyurl.com/cavesSJ

Botanical Areas: Hike and Learn Event with KS Wild and Friends of Cascade Siskiyou National Monument | Facebook

The Cascade Siskiyou National Monument is an epicenter of a biological diversity hot-spot, the Klamath-Siskiyou region. This area has developed this acclaim because it features one of four richest temperate conifer forests in the world, contains rare plant species native to serpentine soils, and hosts many endemic species. The Klamath-Siskiyou region has been recognized as “critical/endangered” by the World Wildlife Foundation, as it is threatened by logging, mining, grazing, and development. 

Jeanine Moy of KS Wild shares about plant diversity found at Cascade-Siskiyou and how citizens can participate in stewardship practices that aid conservation of our unique land.

Friday evening, August 22 at the Medford Library, Jeanine Moy of KS Wild will share some of the plant diversity found at Cascade-Siskiyou and stewardship practices that aid in the conservation of the wilderness. One Saturday, August 23rd she’ll guide a hike exploring the abundant diversity of life.

Marijuana growing on our national forests causes significant harm to the land, water and animals. The toxicants as well as the lethal weapons used on these sites, is both shocking and dangerous. The Forest Service, along with other agencies and volunteers, are working together to restore these impacted lands.

Illegal grows sites on public lands remain a threat to clean water, forest habitat, and the health of wildlife. A study in the Sierras last year showed evidence that female fisher survival is related to the number of marijuana cultivation sites it is likely to encounter.

Save Oregon’s Rough & Ready And Baldface Creeks From Destructive Nickel Mining

Rough & Ready Creek is a beautiful rare plant reserve and tributary of Oregon’s Wild and Scenic Illinois River. Baldface Creek is a pristine tributary of the Wild and Scenic North Fork Smith River. The creeks are home to wild salmon and trout and some of the purest water in the West.

This fragile wild landscape of pristine rivers, world-class fisheries, and rare plants is at risk of being turned into an industrial wasteland of strip mines, nickel smelters, and ore haul roads. Just some of the dangers of nickel mining include high chromium content smelter slag, naturally occurring asbestos, air pollution, and surface and groundwater pollution.
