Cascade-Siskiyou National Monument Threat and Action

Greetings to All,

Just hours ago, the Trump Administration formally started their process to gut protection for the spectacular Cascade-Siskiyou National Monument.

Help us protect the Monument! For this Monument and every other of the 27 monuments under attack by Trump, please take action now.

The Cascade-Siskiyou National Monument is a gem of biodiversity at the intersection of the Cascades, Siskiyous, and Klamath Mountains. The richness in species is without equal. It is a recreational haven for wildlife viewing and hiking, including a stretch of the Pacific Crest Trail. It is an important study area for scientists and students alike. For communities like Ashland and Talent, residents marvel at the lovely green mountains that surround our valley.

It is NOT a place for more industrial logging, mining, or drilling.

The Trump Administration claims there has been little local support the Monument. Hardly! Hundreds of residents turned out at multiple public meetings, and more than 4,000 sent in letters of support to the Department of Interior.

We need you to speak up for the Cascade-Siskiyou.

There’s a 60-day comment period to hear from supporters like you who want the Monument to remain protected.

The timber industry and their lobbyists are pushing to gut the Monument’s protection. The Trump Administration needs to hear from you, as someone who supports protecting public lands.

This is Trump’s first attack on the Klamath-Siskiyou. Let’s show him we can fight back, because we love where we live and will defend what we love. Please submit your comment letters and share this alert on social media.

We refuse to lose our Monument.

For the Wild,

Joseph Vaile, Executive Director
Klamath-Siskiyou Wildlands Center
