Mature and old growth forests are worth more standing!

In April, President Biden recognized the importance of our mature and old-growth trees and forests on federal lands as an essential climate solution, and directed federal agencies to inventory and develop policies to protect them. Despite this Executive Order, the US Forest Service and Bureau of Land Management continue to log these essential climate-saving trees and forests at alarming rates.

It only takes a moment to make a big difference. Here’s how you can take action to save old growth forests.

350 Salem will now meet the second Saturday of each month.

We’ve adopted a new meeting schedule! Join us on Zoom on the 2nd Saturday of each month for our general HUB Meetings. We’ll have updates and reports about ongoing work, discussions and decisions, and announcements of upcoming activities. To participate, email Coordinators@350salemor.org, with “Hub Meeting” in the Subject line.
