Northeast Washington's wild forests merit protection
Urge the Colville National Forest to release their wilderness recommendations
From the Kettle Crest to Hoodoo Canyon to Grassy Top, the future of lands proposed for wilderness for nearly four decades stands in the balance. Your letter for wilderness can help shape just how many acres of wilderness in our backyard are conserved for future generations and for wildlife, from migrating birds to rare animals like gray wolf and grizzly bear. The Colville National Forest in northeast Washington contains some of the most beautiful, remote, and wildlife-rich forests in the state. Yet just 3% of the Colville -- the Salmo-Priest Wilderness Area -- has been permanently protected from off-road vehicle encroachment, commercialization, and development.
Please write Supervisor Brazell today, urging him to recommend all 19 inventoried roadless areas on the Colville National Forest for wilderness protection.
Personalizing the letter below to mention your own experiences and favorite places on the Colville National Forest roadless lands is most powerful.
You can also hand-write your own letter, perhaps the most powerful option, and mail or fax it attention Supervisor Rick Brazell, Colville National Forest, 765 South Main Street, Colville, WA 99114, fax 509-684-7280.
