Western Environmental Law Center (WELC) is engaged in legal advocacy to protect¬†Oregon’s Cascade-Siskiyou National Monument from efforts by the timber industry and the Trump administration to shrink the Monument or alter its conservation management mandate. WELC will use our funding to achieve their goal of winning two federal court cases to ensure that the 2017 expansion of the Monument is upheld and the Monument’s ecological integrity remains intact.
