Congrats to our friends at Western Environmental Law Center, KS Wild, Oregon Wild and Cascadia Wildlands for their victory for Oregon’s forests.

On September 30, a judge ruled that the Poor Windy and Evans Creek timber violated the Endangered Species Act. The Fish and Wildlife Service had claimed that old-growth logging in the  sales on 15,848 acres of threatened northern spotted owl habitat would not harm the owls but the judge ruled in favor of the owls and the forest.

You can read more about the Poor Windy project and other timber sales that target old and mature trees in our Climate Forest Coalition report, Worth More Standing.
