Our ongoing struggle is to expose the truth regarding the decimation that is occurring in California watersheds due to a regulatory system which allows the clearcutting of forests. There are big-money interests who reap all the profits, while the common good pays all the costs...the main cost being the loss of the natural world that supports life as we know it.
Our small non-profit collects water-quality data as proof of the detrimental effects. Our goal is to change forest practices statewide so that the natural world will be protected. We have collected over 2,000 samples since 2009. Funding keeps us afloat, although we are essentially bringing a stick to a fight where the other side has missiles.
