Feds commit millions to Rogue Basin forest restoration project

jx draw - 2022-05-02T194917.427.jpg

President Biden's recent visit to the Northwest made news on the forest front, with Biden's announced intention to preserve and grow old-growth forest. But even before that announcement, the administration selected a forest project in our region for funding.

The Rogue Basin Collaborative Forest Restoration Project will get $3 Million to reduce the high fuel loads and restore ecological balance on lands in the Rogue River-Siskiyou National Forest.

Several of the key players in the project discuss its scope and intent: Bill Kuhn from the Forest Service, Terry Fairbanks from the Southern Oregon Forest Restoration Collaborative, and Marko Bey from Lomakatsi Restoration.
