Review for Los Padres ForestWatch, Santa Barbara, CA, USA
I'm a new board of directors member and have held a Forestwatch membership for many years. I was attracted to Forestwatch because of what they do to protect the forest from serious impacts such as mineral and oil extraction. Forestwatch is the foremost watchdog organization for the Los Padres National Forest and the Carrizo Plain National Monument. These large projects take a tremendous amount of resources and time and cost a lot of money to fight. They work with local lawyers and other organizations to protect these areas.
The large projects are not all they do. They also sponsor weekend trash collection in the forest and invasive species eradication outings.
I began supporting Forestwatch through the 1% for the Planet program and continue to support them in many other ways. It astounds and inspires me to see what they can accomplish and the growing support they receive.
