Sequoia ForestKeeper is dug in for the long fight to protect our beloved forests and the wildlife that depend on them. Never before has the fight been this intense and we have had some extreme battles going back to the days of Reagan and Watt.

Sequoia ForestKeeper is determined to play a role in educating those who misunderstand the role of fire and the role that human encroachment has upon the wildlands.

Environmentalists understand that humans do not live in a vacuum from nature and that humanity cannot be protected if the belief is that we control the natural forces on this earth. To protect our species, we must protect biodiversity.

May all of you be blessed with many wild encounters this year.

May the forest be with you!

The Sequoia ForestKeeper® mission is to protect and restore the ecosystems of the southern Sierra Nevada – including both the Sequoia National Forest and the Giant Sequoia National Monument – through monitoring, enforcement, education, and litigation.

By acting as the eyes, ears, and voice of the forest, SFK seeks to improve land management practices, to promote land stewardship, to enforce existing laws and regulations, to implement public awareness programs, and to offer assistance to local land management agencies.

Comments to the Bureau of Land Management from Sequoia Forest Keeper and the Kern-Kaweah Chapter Sierra Club regarding our opposition to a drilling project at Conglomerate Mesa. We asked them to protect the ecological and historical resources found in the area. We opposed the drilling project because of the presence of multiple special status and rare plant species, impacts to the historic Keeler-Death Valley trail, and to support local tribes in their opposition to this project because of the potential to limit and degrade their access to traditional gathering sites.
