We are seeing the results of the non
management plan being forced on the Forest Service by lawsuits
from extreme groups as our forests & wildlife are incinerated,
as well as flash flooding & catastrophic erosion.
It is high time that the public spoke loud
clear & told our legislators to promote active management & stop
pandering to special interest groups who are daily destroying
hundreds of times more forest & wildlife habitat than the worst
clear cut logging ever could have impacted.
If you would like to restore forest
health please contact Congressman McCarthy's office at 661
327-3611 and ask how the Congressman plans to thin our overgrown
diseased forest to reduce fuel loads & promote forest health.
The following information was provided by the
Sequoia Forest Service. Please check with the Forest or Fire
officials before entering the Forest during fire season. Many
trails & areas are closed at this time.
