Forest in the Crosshairs

forest in the crosshairs cover v2 w logoA report released by Los Padres ForestWatch identifies unregulated target shooting as one of the most serious threats to natural resources and public health and safety in the Los Padres National Forest. The report recommends that the U.S. Forest Service close the forest to target shooting, consistent with how the other three national forests in southern California are managed.

The comprehensive report summarizes the results of our multi-year investigation encompassing more than one million acres of public land in San Luis Obispo, Santa Barbara, Ventura, and Kern counties.
