The Habitat Conservation Plan is vital to protecting the state's forests, wildlife, waters and lifestyle. I believe it is our responsibility to do everything in our power to ensure its success.

The Habitat Conservation Plan aims to balance the needs of the timber industry with the conservation of endangered species, their habitats and the protection of the quality and quantity of our drinking water sources. This is an incredibly important issue, as Oregon's forests are home to many threatened and endangered species, such as the northern spotted owl, marbled murrelet, and salmon to name a few. Without proper protection, these species may disappear forever.
