November is going to be a big month for public forests, and we need you to be a part of the action!
New England Rally for Climate Forests
Saturday, November 12 • Noon
It’s time to RALLY! Join in solidarity with climate and forest activists around the US calling for an end to logging mature and old-growth forests on federal public lands like the Green Mountain National Forest. The proposed Telephone Gap project on the GMNF could cut nearly 11,000-acres critical for carbon storage, biodiversity, and water quality protection. This rally is one of many planned around the US in a National Week of Action for Climate Forests (Oregon, Alaska, Vermont, Montana, Georgia. West Virginia, New Mexico, Colorado, Utah, and California). Together we can send a loud and clear message from New England to Washington, DC!
WHEN: Gather at NOON for the rally; optional visit to recent clearcuts at 1pm
Wear orange or bright colors!
