Conservation Director Veronica Warnock Responds to Inaccurate Editorial

Editorial mistakenly compared two timber sales A recent editorial in the Baker City Hearld, “Reviving a forest project,” Sept. 6, 2017, states that environmental groups oppose the Sparta project and ones like it because they include commercial logging. Both statements are patently untrue. The Greater Hells Canyon Council (formally Hells Canyon Preservation Council) did not oppose the Sparta project. In fact, we are actively working with industry, local communities and other interests in our local forest collaboratives and elsewhere to help design projects that improve forest health and support local communities. We have been able to do so on the East Face project on the Wallowa-Whitman Natio
