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.
