Hike & Bike the Threatened Thurston Hills Trails
November 3 • 10:30 am - 2:00 pm• Free
Join Cascadia Wildlands and Climate Justice League for a visit to the proposed Thurston Hills clearcut timber sale proposal. The Springfield Bureau of Land Management is planning to clearcut log 100 acres of this public forest within Willamalane biking/hiking trails and directly adjacent to the Thurston Hills Natural Area. This sale would have negative impacts on recreation, wildlife, and the nearby community members who will be forced to live near this weakened and newly fire susceptible forest. Join us to explore the area and let the BLM know that we oppose irresponsible backyard clearcuts!
