LPFW is an amazing group and I have been a fan since first being introduced to them in 2006. They are on top of all the hot bed issues pertaining to Los PAdres and work tirelessly to protect the wilderness I have come to know and love. I've worked with them on several projects and am always amazed at their professionallism and dedication to preserving the national forest. They work on such a diverse range of topics from logging to ORV to fracking and condor preservation. They are one of the only groups protecting such a large tract of national forest from the LA county line almost to Santa cruz and do so much good. I hope that in the years to come, my kids can explore the forest in the same state as I have and hold it close to their hearts.
Thanks to all the LPFW crew for all your efforts.
