Public Lands Project
The Native Forest Network’s Public Lands Project (PLP)
works to protect and restore America’s public lands
and wild places through public education, on-the-ground
forest monitoring and legal action. Our goal is to protect America’s
public lands from industrial logging, roadbuilding and other
forms of industrial exploitation; while investing in scientifically-based
restoration projects that put local people in rural communities
to work restoring our public lands.

||A Hard Look
at the Bitterroot "Burned Area Recovery Plan"
This new publication from the Native Forest Network examines
the on-the-ground realities of the Bitterroot National
Forest’s so-called "Burned Area Recovery Plan."
Originally touted by the Forest Service and logging industry
as a model approach to post-fire restoration and community
protection following the 2000 wildfires, actual implementation
of the "recovery" plan has been plagued by broken
promises and a complete lack of accountability.
Forest Roadshow Coming to a Community Near You
The Native Forest Network has teamed up with other organizations
to launch a nationwide Ancient Forest Roadshow! The Roadshow
will travel across the country with a symbol of our national
heritage, a 420-year-old Douglas Fir cut down on a public
lands timber sale in Oregon. See when the Roadshow is
coming to your community, touch what was once living history
and learn what you can do to protect America’s National
Areas of Idaho and Montana: What We've Lost and What We
Stand to Lose (pdf)
This new report from the Native Forest Network
and Friends of the Clearwater looks at key roadless wildlands
in the northern Rockies. If the Roadless Rule is reversed
by the Bush Administration, over nine million acres of
roadless wildlands in the northern Rockies currently offered
some protections by the Roadless Rule would be opened
for logging and roadbuilding.
