Stop desecration of Tongass N.F.

To the editor,

Please contact Sens. Bennet and Hickenlooper to request that Congress and the Biden Administration stop the logging of the Tongass National Forest in Alaska.

Trump removed protection of the Tongass, an old growth green ecosystem of giant spruce, cedar and Doug fir draped with mosses and ferns. It is also home to a wealth of wildlife including elk, cougar and the white spirit bear – the only one like it in the world. The forest is also sacred to First Nations. Please ask your senators and the Forest Service to work to protect this magical place.
