KBOO News Story on Jazz Timber Sale Protest at Mt. Hood Forest Headquarters

program: 
Evening News
program date: 
Wed, 05/07/2014
In July, 2013, the forest watchdog group Bark filed a lawsuit challenging the Forest Service on the Jazz Timber Sale in the Clackamas Ranger District.
Bark’s lawsuit alleges that the forest Service did not comply with the National Environmental Policy Act and the national Forest Management Act in its decision to log this geologically unstable watershed.
Despite active litigation, the Forest Service proceeded with entering into contracts with the Canadian timber giant Interfor to log parts of the sale.
Just last month, Federal District Judge Marco Hernandez dismissed Bark’s factual and legal challenges, deferring to the Forest Service’s claims that the sale is legal and allowing logging to continue.
Early this afternoon around 75 Bark members and supporters rallied at the Mount Hood Forest headquarters in Sandy, where Bark director Alex brown and attorney Brenna Bell addressed the crowd.
They delivered a letter signed by several environmental groups to Forest Supervisor Lisa Northrup requesting the withdrawal of the timber sale, announced an  appeal to the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals, and pledged to take the fight to the woods this summer.The controversial Jazz timber sale in the Mount Hood National Forest continues to draw opposition from local activists.
KBOO’s Paul Roland was there and has this report.
