Legal challenge filed against timber sale following Archie Creek fire
It's not a process of nature, but it happens after many large wildfires now: a plan emerges for logging the burned area, and a debate ensues.
One of the September 2020 fires, Archie Creek, burned a large area along the North Umpqua River in Douglas County. The Bureau of Land Management proposed a timber sale in the burn area, and conservation groups found some fault with it. Enough fault that they took the plan to federal court in Eugene.
Three groups are named in the complaint, which seeks to block the sale through injunction. We get a sketch of the objections from Nick Cady at Cascadia Wildlands and Susan Jane Brown at the Western Environmental Law Center.
