You’re invited to a rally and speak-out in support of the McKay Tract
Community Forest at NOON on TUESDAY DEC 17th at the Humboldt County
Courthouse in Eureka.
The original idea of turning parts of the McKay Tract into a Community
Forest came as a result of Earth First! Humboldt=92s 4 year occupation of a
mature, 2nd-growth redwood forest that had been slated for clearcut by
timber company Green Diamond.
We call on the Board of Supervisors to purchase the MAXIMUM proposed
acreage (1,415 acres) for the upcoming McKay/Eureka Community Forest. The
Community Forest MUST FUND AND INCLUDE Phase 2, 866 acres which contains
the mature 2nd growth redwood forest that was the focus of the 4 year long
McKay Tract tree-sit campaign.
Come tell the Board of Supervisors why they must include one of the oldest,
most ecologically significant portions of McKay Tract forest in the final
Eureka Community Forest plan. If the area is not included, it could be in
danger once again.
This is the LAST public meeting before the Board of Supervisors decide the
size and extent of the McKay Community Forest. See you on 12/17 at noon!
Tuesday December 17th:
NOON Rally (veggie lunch will be served) at Humboldt Co. Courthouse in
2 PM McKay Tract portion of Board of Supervisors meeting
