Today is a momentous day for our region. We are thrilled to announce that the Obama Administration moved forward with expanding Cascade-Siskiyou National Monument.
So many of you, our supporters, as well as other invested organizations including the Soda Mountain Wilderness Council and KS Wild have worked tirelessly to advocate for an expanded Monument. This expansion will ensure the region's unparalleled biodiversity remains intact, especially with the threat of climate change.
The expansion is an additional 48,000 acres, 5,000 of which are in the Siskiyou County of California. Both of Oregon’s US Senators, Ron Wyden and Jeff Merkley, as well as Oregon Governor Kate Brown, strongly supported the Monument expansion.
Take a moment to give them a heartfelt thanks for ensuring the continued protection of biodiversity in Southern Oregon.
Thank our elected officials including President Obama, Senators Merkley and Wyden, and Governor Kate Brown.
