Heartwood's Forest Watch Program provides national leadership in challenging the privatization, commercialization, and exploitation of our nation's public lands, through education, administrative appeals, and litigation. We help people participate in the decision-making process for public lands through Forest Watch trainings, our Citizens Guide and other publications, our widely-distributed action alerts, and our easy-to-use web alerts. http://www.heartwood.org/alerts.php. When necessary, we defend the public interest through the courts.
