Mount St Helen’s Mine Update

The Forest Service has finalized their decision to consent to exploratory drilling in the Green River valley. Currently, the Bureau of Land Management is deciding whether to issue exploratory drilling permits to Ascot Resources. We will continue to challenge these permits through administrative processes and the courts.

We had a wonderful evening celebrating our successful opposition to this mine for over a decade and discussing what 2018 will bring for this campaign.To learn more about how to stop mining near Mount St. Helens and take action, visit: https://www.cascadeforest.org/stop-the-mine/

New Blog! : Forest Collaborative Groups

P1000408In forest collaborative groups, diverse stakeholders including environmental organizations, timber companies, recreational organizations, and other interested members of the community come together to discuss timber sales and other proposed projects with Forest Service staff. Cascade Forest Conservancy is a founding member of, and active participant in, both forest collaboratives in the Gifford Pinchot National Forest. The Pinchot Partners, formed in 2003, focuses on projects in the Cowlitz Valley Ranger District, and the South Gifford Pinchot Collaborative, formed in 2011, focuses on projects in the Mt. Adams Ranger District. Through collaborative participation, our goal is to influence GPNF projects to be sustainable for wildlife, fish, water quality, and local communities.
