Snow Basin Timber Sale Cancelled

After a long and complex litigation fight, the USFS finally cancelled this illegal timber sale in the Wallowa-Whitman National Forest.

If you’ve been following– or even helped work on–the Snow Basin Timber Sale in the Wallowa-Whitman National Forest in Eastern Oregon, you’ll be happy to know that after many years of successfully fighting in court to stop the sale, the sale has been cancelled! We also achieved a precedent setting ruling that has already had a chilling effect on similar illegal timber sale proposals. The forests of Eastern Oregon, and the critters that live there, will be protected thanks to this ruling.
