Protect Crater Lake

​Protect Crater Lake

A 75-mile wilderness corridor would preserve Crater Lake's ecosystem

With its deep blue waters and 2,000-foot rim walls, Crater Lake is Oregon's crown jewel, and the surrounding mountains and forests are home to Roosevelt elk, black bears, bald eagles, and spawning salmon.

Yet year after year, logging companies push to clearcut old-growth forest right outside the boundaries of Crater Lake National park, threatening the wildlife, waterways, and ecosystem within the park. That's why we're working to win permanent protection for 500,000 acres of wilderness in and around Crater Lake National Park.

Crater Lake is the deepest lake in America and half a million people visit the lake each year. It deserves the best protection we can give.

Opportunity to protect vulnerable forests

Proposals for forest clear cuts would threaten thousands of acres adjacent to Crater Lake. We're fighting to make sure the logging companies don't trample our pristine wilderness and cause irreparable hard to Crater Lake's delicate ecosystem. One way to do that? Establish a 75-mile, 500,000 acre protected wilderness corridor. We will be working to educate the public and show our leaders that Crater Lake should be protected. 

With your help, we can win!
