We’re delighted you’re interested in joining GFW’s new ForestRoots Coalition to advocate for the wild places of the Chattahoochee-Oconee National Forest (CONF)!
Maybe you want to know about threats to a special area in your Ranger District--a favorite family hiking spot, a secret trout stream, or some woods where the hunting is good. Or you’re a big-picture kind of person, concerned about the sweeping changes the Forest Service Foothills Landscape Project portends for an entire landscape.
Either way, the wild places you enjoy and want to see protected can’t speak for themselves. They need people who are primed and ready to quickly express their opinions to the Forest Service via multiple channels. ForestRoots is designed to bring together those people in every district of the CONF.
You can pick your own level of advocacy.
Are you great at making phone calls?
Would you rather write letters?
Ready to speak out at public hearings?
Do you have grassroots organizing experience you’d like to share? Would you host a meeting of folks in your District?
Do you have other skills you’d like to contribute?
Later this year, GFW will offer free advocacy training workshops, and by signing up, you’ll receive first notice of events in your area. We’ll also alert you by email and text when land management issues arise and rapid response is required. (We promise not to abuse your cellphone info, and if you prefer not to be texted, simply leave the space blank below.)
