On November 9th, 300 Acres of M ature, Closed Canopy Hardwood Forest Could Be Logged. Only Governor Holcomb Can Stop This.
300 acres of the Yellowwood Backcountry Area could be -- within days -- irreparably harmed. These forest tracts have largely been untouched since 1981, when they were designated as "Backcountry Areas" by then-Governor Bob Orr, a Republican.

On November 9th, our state government could press ahead with a timber sale of these 300 acres. The only person who can halt this sale is Governor Eric Holcomb.

Here's What You Can Do:

  1. Encourage your network to contact Gov. Holcomb at 317-232-4567 or at govholcomb@gov.in.gov
  2. Volunteer to canvass in Brown County and Indianapolis to inform fellow Hoosiers about the situation and to urge them to contact the Governor.
  3. "Like" Save Yellowwood to follow daily developments.
  4. Tweet and Instagram using hashtag #SaveYellowwood.
  5. Get More Background. Read more at our dedicated webpage.

There's so little time left. Please act today!
