In 2022 there was a community campaign to stop the Aldwell timber sale that mobilized hundreds of people to take action. Also in 2022 CRF helped form the Elwha Legacy Forest Coalition in response to the clearcutting of legacy forests in such an ecologically sensitive watershed.

 

Because the Elwha River watershed is a primary source of water for the city of Port Angeles, the Port Angeles City Council requested that the Aldwell auction be put on hold, but the DNR ignored the request and the forest was logged. Clallam County may have more legacy forests than any other county. There are almost 100 units we need to survey in a very short time! There are a number of ways to get involved. We need more people who can give public comments at County Council meetings, write letters to the editor, and survey timber sales.

CRF has developed a report on Mature Forests in the County that Need Our Help!

Mature Forest Policy


The best way to protect forests in your county is statewide policy change!
Take just a moment and send a letter belo
w!

We need to ensure that the Commissioner of Public Lands, Hilary Franz, puts an end to logging the last remaining mature forests in western Washington.

Send a letter to the Commissioner of Public Lands and the Board of Natural Resources asking them to enact a moratorium on logging mature forests until a mature forest policy is adopted.
