Help save our national forests!

National forests need you to raise a little noise on their behalf.

The threat to national forests
The Obama administration is about ready to green-light a new management rule that would damage our national forests.

The administration’s proposed Forest Planning Rule threatens forests by:

- decreasing protective measures for wildlife
- jeopardizing drinking water supplies

This rule is expected to be finalized within the next month and it will govern every decision made on national forests for decades to come.
