    and aquatic species Also past forest management and wildfire suppression has altered tree species and warmer winters have favored more insect attacks such as the pine bark beetle For our region to survive drought and warmer temperatures we must increase resiliency in our public forests The Lands Council is increasing climate resilient species by working in collaboration with diverse stakeholders This work and protecting old growth forests provides a stronger habitat if species are forced to move northward due to drought and warming Also we are using beavers to store more water this increases aquatic resiliency creates cooler temperatures and expands aquatic habitat Changes in energy usage in the U S have also created a problem for our region as more coal and oil are mined in Montana Wyoming and North Dakota and transported by rail to the Pacific Coast This not only increases greenhouse gases but oil trains also pose a real and significant threat to the safety of our communities due to their explosive potential To improve our safety and slow the pace of these trains through our region we must increase public awareness of the dangers oil trains and engage citizens to challenge new coal and oil facilities These efforts will also ultimately delay the export of coal and oil the products that already fuel and increase in greenhouse gases more info similar programs Spokane River National Forests Beaver Solution Coal and Oil Find Events Become a member Volunteer Make a quick donation here 5 25 100 Get connected Featured Video More videos Upcoming Events 19 May Save Mt Spokane Fundraiser May 19 5 00 pm 8 00 pm 25 West Main 03 Jun First Friday Open House June 3 5 00 pm 8 00 pm 25 West Main 11 Jun Paddle the Hanford Reach June 11
