Medford, Ore. - Local community activists joined Greenpeace today for the launch of its first U.S. Forest Rescue Station, at the site of the proposed Kelsey Whiskey timber sale, located in the Klamath-Siskiyou region of southern Oregon. The mobile Station, which is open to the public for workshops, hikes and other educational activities, is a hub for Greenpeace's campaign calling for greater protection and restoration of forests on U.S. public lands, and a moratorium on commercial logging.
