What You Can Do

See the Final Summary.

Please take a few minutes and help save The Children's Forest. Act soon. The Oregon Department of Forestry plans to sell the right to cut down the forest in the spring of 2001.

What do we want the Oregon Department of Forestry to do?

1. We want them not to cut the giant trees in The Children's Forest.

2. We want them to take a closer look at what they can do to protect the northern goshawks.

3. We want them to look at what has been happening in the past and come up with a plan to save the last of their old growth forests and the creatures dependent on them.


The Governor of Oregon is the guardian of The Children's Forest.

Write and ask him to save the giant trees and the Northern Goshawk.

Send him a picture of the way you want your forest to look.
