Our Work

Document Actions
Our advocacy and legal cases tackle some of today's most pressing forestry issues.

Ensuring Clean Water for Critical Fish Habitat

WFLC is taking action in Oregon to protect forested rivers and streams from stormwater runoff.

Supporting Credible Forest Certification Systems  

WFLC is supporting credible forest certification systems that advance responsible forest management and protect working forest ecosystems.

Advocating for the Preservation of Forestlands

WFLC is taking action to protect forestlands from conversion to non-forest uses. Working forests contribute to the regional economy and family incomes, provide wildlife habitat and recreation, and store carbon.

Challenging the 2006 Softwood Lumber Agreement

WFLC is taking action to uncover the truth behind the $350 million giveaway to the U.S. timber industry and its allies.

Protecting and Recovering the Northern Spotted Owl

WFLC is taking steps to ensure the protection and recovery of the northern spotted owl and its critical habitat.

Promoting Real Salmon Recovery

WFLC is leading efforts to ensure that logging rules and Habitat Conservation Plans employ the best available science to protect our threatened salmon runs. We are also taking action to improve and enforce the forest practices rules governing logging on steep and unstable slopes.

Addressing the Cumulative Effects of Forest Practices

WFLC is working to close the “death by a thousand cuts” loophole in the Washington forest practices regulations.

Assisting Small Forest Landowners

WFLC is encouraging rules and policies that benefit both the small forest landowners and the forests. Small forest landowners' stewardship plays a vital role in protecting our forests and rural areas from development.
