Saving our Hardwoods
To learn more about the fight to save the hardwoods from being deforested on Catoosa, please see https://meteorologistmark.com/save-the-hardwoods/. Legislation is being considered that would prevent TWRA from directly profiting from the timber cutting, which would likely discourage them from further deforesting. Please help us fight to save our hardwoods for present and future generations.
