The Blue Mountains Biodiversity Project has been working to protect and restore the ecosystems of Eastern Oregon for since 1991. We work to stop or modify projects on federal lands that threaten ecological integrity and biodiversity, such as logging, road building, livestock grazing, herbicide and biocide use, and mining. Our work area includes the Blue Mountains in the Malheur, Ochoco, and Umatilla National Forests, and the Eastern Oregon Cascades in the Deschutes National Forest. Our work is important for the conservation of numerous species, including salmon, wolves, lynx, rare woodpeckers, Pacific fishers, marten, and wolverine.
Blue Mountains Biodiversity Project is the only organization in the geographic region that field surveys every major timber sale. Every summer, our volunteers help us field survey thousands of acres of proposed timber sales. Their survey sheets and photos become evidence used in our comments to the Forest Service, and in potential negotiations and litigation. BMBP has a proven track record of successfully defending forests from ecologically destructive timber sales and other projects. We have stopped the logging of many thousands of acres of forests, including ancient and never-logged forests, post-fire and riparian areas, moist mixed-conifer forests, and potential wilderness and roadless areas. You can read more about our some of our key accomplishments here.
BMBP is a tax-exempt 501c3 nonprofit organization.
