Help Us Permanently Protect the Elliott State Forest

The Elliott State Forest needs our help to stop it from being sold off to private industrial interests due to a lack of political leadership.

Located in the Southern Oregon Coast Range, the Elliott is a 93,000-acre state owned forestland. It contains more than 41,000 acres of mature native forest and some of the most productive and pristine streams for Coho and Chinook Salmon. The forest provides a stronghold of critical habitat for federally threatened Marbled Murrelets and Northern Spotted Owls, especially among the fragmented private forests of the Oregon coast range.

Write to the State Land Board to Urge Them to Protect the Elliott

Tell Governor Kate Brown, Treasurer Ted Wheeler, and Secretary of State Jeanne Atkins that we will not accept the privatization of our public lands.
