Protect WA State Legacy Forests Campaign
Washington State’s older state-owned forests store carbon at remarkable rates. These older forests are also being clear-cut at alarming rates under current state policy—up to 5,000 more acres are slated to be cut in the next year. This aggressive rate of logging worsens climate change, landslides and flooding. To meet our 2050 climate goals, we must create new tools and approaches including the state’s new Natural Climate Solutions Account to 1) immediately protect these carbon dense forests and 2) purchase replacement lands for timber production to maintain rural jobs and to protect our forests from conversion and development.
While the Campaign Organizer will be working closely with consultants and coalition members on the campaign, they will be working for CRF to support our objective of protecting legacy forests.
