  1. Mendocino Trail Stewards is actually not wanting to add this to the state park system: we are advocating for a forest demonstrating science for Climate Change Mitigation, Ecosystem Restoration, and Non-Motorized Recreation. Our on the ground inventories show that up to 50% of the over 48” trees in the plan area are marked for cut-this in spite of the management plan calling for not cutting such trees without a good reason. Further, much of the plan area is truly in need of genuine thinning of economically worthless brush and small trees, but instead the plan is to remove many of the very trees that can and do survive fire.

  2. The struggle continues. Essentially, some last gasps of the the logging industry, as the movement to replace it with pot growing is nearly finished. Hard, honest work done by honest men is replaced by drug dealing. “Make money while you sleep.”

  3. “The generation that destroys the environment is not the generation that pays the price. That is the problem.”- –Dr. Wangari Maathai, 2004 Noble Prize laureate and environmentalist.
