We've put the law to the test and have experienced great success. We can feel the vibrations as the movement to defend our eastern forests builds. Citizens have risked freedom for the old growth forests of Virginia, struggled hard to keep Parsons & Whittemore out of West Virginia, fought long to defend their homes and woods from corporate giants like Collins-Pine and Willamette Industries, plugged away to defend the Allegheny from the hands of the mis-managers at the Forest Service, and put the pens to work generating funds to keep the Allegheny movement alive. All of this hard work equates to great accomplishments, increased public awareness, a more sustainable movement for the protection of our forests, and a lively, fun, and informative Hellbender Journal! You all rock!
