Shame CAL FIRE’s Deception & Stop Logging in Jackson Demonstration State Forest!
Only takes 30 seconds to send 7 emails, click here
Take Action! CAL FIRE just announced that it would resume logging in Jackson Demonstration State Forest (JDSF). Last year, protestors halted logging on four Timber Harvest Plans (THPs) located in JDSF, which would have cut down large second-growth redwoods and threatened Native American Sacred Sites.
In the midst of these protests, CAL FIRE announced that it would pause logging while discussing Co-Management agreements with the local tribes and rewriting their Management Plan. Since then, logging has been paused on JDSF. But now, without coming to an agreement with the tribes or writing a new Management Plan, CAL FIRE has announced that it will resume logging in JDSF.
Take action now to tell CAL FIRE to stop the logging in JDSF and support the Coyote Valley Band of Pomo Indians! Click here to send an email

COMMUNITY ACTION ALERT
Sun Oct 9th 1pm at Caspar Kiosk
CALL FOR INPUT ON CAL FIRE’S SETTLEMENT OFFER ON THE CASPAR 500
THP IN JACKSON DEMONSTRATION STATE FOREST
Priscilla Hunter, Tribal Historic Preservation Officer of the Coyote
Valley Band of Pomo Indians is calling for a Community Meeting of concerned citizens on October 9 th at the Kiosk on Road 500 at 1:00 pm in Jackson Demonstration State Forest to address concerns raised by the letter she received from Cal Fire on September 26 th.
She is very alarmed that sacred site protection concerns have gone totally unaddressed in Cal Fire negotiations to date, and finds the response contained in the letter from Cal Fire to be unacceptable.
The Co Management Agreement her Tribe seeks is for the entirety of JDSF, their ancestral Northern Pomo and Coast Yuki territory, not just a 75 acre view corridor in the Caspar 500 THP.
A Coalition of concerned citizens, Save Jackson.org, and her Tribe are calling for a Moratorium on logging operations in JDSF until a Tribal Co-Management Agreement is completed and sacred site protection as well as climate change and fire safety concerns have been satisfactorily addressed in a new Management Plan.
Please join her on October 9 th to offer community input in response to this Cal Fire letter
Directions to the Kiosk From Hwy 1 go east on Fern Creek Road, turn right on Caspar Orchard Road, follow it until it becomes dirt and continue to the parking area at the kiosk. Bring chairs
