Presenting the Northwest California Wilderness, Recreation, and Working Forests Act

Alison Sterling Nichols and Jeff Morris will present the Northwest California Wilderness, Recreation, and Working Forests Act (H.R. 6596, S. 3705), legislation introduced last year by Representative Jared Huffman and Senator Kamala Harris. The bill will protect 260,000 acres of wilderness and 380 miles of wild and scenic rivers on federal public lands in Trinity, Del Norte, Humboldt, and Mendocino Counties. Other key components of the legislation included improved recreation opportunities, remediation of illegal marijuana grows on public lands, improved cooperative fire management between government agencies, and restoration of previously logged forests in the South Fork Trinity and Mad River watersheds

Alison moved to Humboldt County 25 years ago to attend Humboldt State University and has worked for conservation organizations and on political campaigns for 30 years.
