    new wilderness I have some good news to share Our efforts to preserve new wilderness and better forest management in the Colville National Forest are reaching new heights On August 14th Senator Maria Cantwell and Representative Cathy McMorris Rodgers held a listening session in Spokane I gave a brief presentation about the success of the Northeast Washington Forestry Coalition in bringing together mill owners recreationalists environmentalists local government and the Forest Service to find common ground in how we utilize and protect the Colville National Forest Support from our elected officials was very high at the session Despite our success we still have several challenges to preserving wilderness The Forest Service s wilderness evaluation process is a big challenge The Forest Plan leadership team found only a few roadless areas met their criteria for Wilderness Members of the Coalition are concerned they have applied the criteria too narrowly We are both disappointed but cautiously optimistic that the Forest Service will increase their support for Wilderness and follow our lead in finding balance in the forest Our other big challenge is to increase support from local elected officials ranchers and the Colville Confederated Tribe we are hard at work on multiple fronts I am very hopeful about achieving new Wilderness and pleased that the Colville Listening Session moved us closer to our goals U S Senators and Representatives are taking notice of our work The head of the Forest Service is taking notice Now I need your help to keep the momentum going Please make a special gift to The Lands Council in support of our work to create a balanced plan and new wilderness in the Colville National forest Mike August 2009 Another Victory For Our Forests The Lands Council played a major role in last week s Forest Listening Session hosted by Senator Maria Cantwell and Congresswoman Cathy McMorris Rodgers Support was very high for our forestry coalition to gain new Wilderness and improved forest management on the Colville National Forest The Colville has not had appeals or litigation on timber sales for over six years and the timber industry is supporting Wilderness for most of the roadless acreage on the forest The work of the Northeast Washington Forestry Coalition which we helped found showcase how collaboration can work to protect forests We have not done this by changing environmental laws but by getting out in the forest working with the Forest Service and finding a common set of interests We still have a couple of challenges The Forest Service s Colville wilderness evaluation process is a big challenge The Forest Plan leadership team found only a few roadless areas that met their criteria for Wilderness We are concerned they have applied the criteria too narrowly We are both disappointed but cautiously optimistic that the Forest will increase their support for Wilderness and follow our lead in finding balance in the forest Stay tuned this fall as we work to gain the first new Wilderness in our region in
