The Oregon Department of Forestry recently released its 2013 plans for logging in the Elliott State Forest. Of the sales planned for next year, 15 will be deferred from logging due to the marbled murrelet lawsuit against Oregon Department of Forestry and other state officials that Crag is helping litigate on behalf of Cascadia Wildlands, the Center for Biological Diversity, and Audubon Society of Portland. This announcement brings the total number of acres of forest saved from the chopping block – at least temporarily –by the lawsuit from over 700 acres as a result of our clients’ preliminary injunction motion to over 1,600 acres with this recent announcement.
