Save Yellowwood State Forest

We are making ourselves heard. We implore Governor Holcomb to reconsider a proposal by the Division of Forestry (DOF) in the Indiana Department of Natural Resources to log 299 acres in the Morgan-Monroe/Yellowwood State Forest Back Country Area (BCA). This special area of our State Forest is home to rare old trees, 21 endangered species, and hiking trails that should remain undisturbed. Hundreds of Hoosier scientists have spoken out about the critical need to avoid logging in this part of our forest. Please reach out to Governor Holcomb and state lawmakers to intercede and save this forest from destructive logging.

  • Thanks to you, 520,937 people got the message to help save the Yellowwood Forest!

    THANK YOU! 132 of us pumped out a message in unison this morning, inviting our followers to CONTACT Governor Holcomb with the message: Save Yellowwood! Call off the plan to log one of the most beautiful old forests in southern Indiana. Heed the will of the people for protecting our natural resources as true and lasting assets.

    Our collective virtual reach in the name of our forests is powerful! If you want to help in real time as well, you can:
    Thanks again for speaking for the trees!
