Conservationist Concern Over Klamath Fire Follow


Count on a lot of comments on the Westside Fire Recovery Project in the Klamath National Forest.

The project would involve salvage logging and other activities in three major areas burned by fires in the summer of 2014.

We talked to the forest bosses in a previous segment; now we hear the concerns of KS Wild and other conservation groups.

George Sexton from KS Wild and Craig Tucker from the Karuk Tribe join us.

ADDENDUM: A listener pointed out the confusion the names produce... the Klamath National Forest is largely in California, and not AT ALL in Klamath County, Oregon.  Conversely, the Rogue River-Siskiyou National Forest is entirely in Oregon, and not AT ALL in Siskiyou County, California.
