Help the Mt. Baker-Snoqualmie National Forest plan for a sustainable road network on nearly 2 million acres in the Cascades. From Mount Rainier National Park north to the Canadian border, this is one of the most visited national forests in the country.  Over 2,500 miles of road provide access to the forest, while national forest staff estimate they can afford to maintain a portion of the system.

Conservation Northwest's forest restoration program prioritizes identifying a balanced road network on our public lands and rehabilitating roads not needed.

Attend a series of public meetings on the road system in the Mt Baker-Snoqualmie - with facilitated opportunities to lend your voice.

Please attend and make your voice heard!

The Mount Baker Snoqualmie National Forest provides:

  • the headwaters to Puget Sound and many communities,
  • wildlife habitat for a range of species from spotted owls to wolverines,
  • recreational opportunities from skiing to hiking trails,
  • and timber products from thinning projects.

Background: Following Congressional direction, by 2015 the forest must analyze its entire road system to identify high-priority road segments for land management and recreational access as well as segments that pose a risk to watersheds and wildlife habitat.

Unnecessary, poorly located, and unmaintained road segments can erode into streams, reduce security habitat for wildlife, spread invasive species, and more. 

Space is often limited at these public meetings, so please RSVP to help in planning.
