The PROWL Project: Standing up for Central Oregon Forests
The PROWL Project is springing into action to bring new energy to forest conservation east of the Cascade crest. "PROWL" is the acronym for a nice long name: Protecting and Restoring Oregon Wild Lands. We are based in Bend and engage in forest watch and public outreach activities to protect the Ochoco and Deschutes National Forests. Our goal is to pounce on (and stop!) proposed public lands projects that are likely to degrade native ecosystems and to support ecological restoration.

"Back to the Wall" celebrates victory!
Forest activists from all over the state of Oregon converged near Ashland this weekend to protest the Bear pen timber sale as part of the kickoff of the "Back to the wall" campaign to save our forests.
"Back to the Wall" chapters from Portland, Salem, Eugene, Roseburg, and Ashland all participated in what turned out to be a "victory" party when our large presence forced the forest service to lift the "closure" that had previously resulted in 3 arrests two weeks ago.
