The Heritage Forests Campaign is an alliance of conservationists, wildlife advocates, sportsman's organizations, educators, scientists, clergy and ordinary Americans who are working together to uphold the protection of our last untouched National Forest lands.

After the most extensive public rulemaking ever, encompassing more than 600 public hearings and 1.6 million comments, the U.S. Forest Service issued the Roadless Area Conservation Policy on January 5, 2001. The Roadless Area Conservation Policy protects the last remaining wild National Forest lands from most logging, except when needed to restore ecological integrity, protect habitat for endangered species, or reduce threats of catastrophic wildfires.

While protecting 30 percent of America's National Forest lands without erecting a single "no-trespassing" sign, the new policy allows more than half of our National Forests to remain open to drilling, mining, and logging. But right now, despite broad, bipartisan support, this balanced policy is under attack.

Join us in protecting America's last wild forests as a heritage for our children. Americans understand that once these forests are gone, they're gone forever.
