Review for Los Padres ForestWatch, Santa Barbara, CA, USA
This is my favorite charity. A young couple just out of law school started it some 20 years ago, and I was one of the early supporters. This protection was badly needed. The Los Padres National Forest is huge -- extending from Ventura to Monterey. The Los Padres Forest Watch is the only organization that defends the public interest in how this forest is managed. LPFW has been highly effective in preventing commercial exploitation that would have degraded the healthy ecosystem nature of the forest This protection is still needed; the commercial interests keep finding ways to get political support.
