Klamath Mountains sedge peatlands

Headwater meadow sedge fens are important to preserving our water supplies. Many fens on our national forests are getting trashed and degraded by cattle.

It is plain stupid to damage water supplies and water quality so that a few ranchers can produce a few more beefs by graze their cattle in our national forest headwater meadows. 

Here’s a photo of a trampled fen in Big Meadows, Marble Mountain Wilderness, Klamath National Forest from the Grazing Reform Project:

Tribal staff and officials, For the sake of salmon and healthy aquatic ecosystems, please use our comanagment status to reduce or end grazing in our national forest headwater wetlands.
