Project Description:

To educate and urge state officials to exert their influence in U.S. Forest Service (USFS) projects that threaten inventoried roadless areas (IRAs) in California. IRA’s are some of the wildest remaining areas of our national forests. CalWild will inform state offices of four recent projects which threaten IRAs with logging, road-building, and/or new off-highway vehicle routes, and work to get letters from the state in support of modifying the projects or asking for full environmental impact statements.
