The Elliott State Forest needs our help to stop it from being sold off to private industrial interests due to a lack of political leadership.

Located in the Southern Oregon Coast Range, the Elliott is a 93,000-acre state owned forestland. It contains more than 41,000 acres of mature native forest and some of the most productive and pristine streams for Coho and Chinook Salmon. The forest provides a stronghold of critical habitat for federally threatened Marbled Murrelets and Northern Spotted Owls, especially among the fragmented private forests of the Oregon coast range.

Click here to learn more about the history of the Elliott and the importance of its habitat for imperiled species. Also, attend a teach-in at Portland Audubon on October 6 from 6-8 p.m.

Read more here about Portland Audubon’s work to protect the Elliott and how years of unsustainable logging and illegal management by the State have left half of the forest clear-cut and the State Land Board considering liquidation of the entire public forest.
