The Cascade-Siskiyou National Monument is located where numerous ecoregions and mountain ranges collide in a stunning display of sheer geography and unparalleled biodiversity. The Monument has long been described as an ecological wonder due to its diversity of plant and animal life, which contributed to two presidents designating this area as a National Monument. In stripping the monument of protections, President Trump would open up this unique biological crossroads and the many species who call it home to aggressive commercial logging.
These threats to the Cascade-Siskiyou come against a backdrop of mounting attacks on public lands. The president’s recent orders to shrink America’s Monuments in Utah constitute the largest rollback of protected public land in our country’s history.
In the face of unprecedented threats to our public places, defenders of public lands need to get educated and get organized. Come join us for an evening of thoughtful discussion, refreshments, and next steps for taking action in defense of the public lands we love!
