Since 2022 Whatcom County community members have successfully paused or canceled 3 legacy forest timber sales! Now we are trying to protect all legacy forests in the Lake Whatcom and Nooksack watersheds. 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.

Mature Forest Policy
The best way to protect forests in your county is statewide policy change!
Take just a moment and send a letter below!
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.
