We need your help to support our lawsuit to protect 10 million acres of fragile habitat in California. The goal of our suit is to block a state wide plan targeting a quarter million acres of habitat per year for clearance under the guise of fire protection. Through the use of herbicides, grinding machines, unnatural fire, and soil disturbance, Cal Fire plans to clear vast areas of important carbon absorbing habitat already threatened by climate change.

If we don't stop them now, Nature will no longer be safe in California.
