It's urgent that this information get out -- especially now when so much attention is being diverted to the war which is hugely important, obviously--but under cover of which people in congress can push this sort of thing through without much notice being taken. We must show them that we are paying attention to everything they're doing.

It was brought to my attention that they are trying to do logging in California again at one of our National Monuments. We need to stop this logging.

I have been lucky enough to have visited Muir forest in years gone by, it is amazing to see the size of the beautiful (Redwood Trees) Sequoia Trees,
The thought of them logging these beautiful creations of God's is mind boggling to me.
The Forest Service continues to cling to practices of the past and is allowing old timber sale contracts to move forward in the Sequoia National Monument.
The Burton Timber Sale was logged last summer (2006).
John Muir Project, Sequoia Forestkeeper, and Sierra Club halted two other timber sales in the National Monument, but a new bill in Congress (H.R.5760) threatens to revive these timber sales that were enjoined by a federal court.
