The Los Padres National Forest is threatened by three planned logging projects targeting old-growth forests. Two of these projects are the subject of this request: (1) the Cuddy Valley Project, for which we are seeking funds to file an appeal to the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals, and (2) the Pine Mountain Project, for which we are seeking funding to conduct surveys for California spotted owl and other species at risk.
