Caring for Creation: Deforestation


Submitted by Mary Schu and Lora Langford (Members of the Caring for Creation Committee)

Within Eastern Washington forests (including the National Forest, Tribal Land, State Land, DNR), massive deforestation and destruction of habitat has been occurring since 2017. The deforested area includes 1.25 to 2.0 million acres of largely healthy forests. We would like to stop the deforestation, habitat obliteration, and eradication of the plants and animal species in Eastern Washington forests. These are public lands and all should have a voice on how they are used and managed. All should benefit from their beauty and the uses they provide. Voice your concerns to one or all the following:

Governor Jay Inslee
P.O. Box 40002
Olympia, WA 98504-0002

Senator Maria Cantwell
920 W Riverside Ave. Suite 697
Spokane, WA 99201

Senator Patty Murray
