Bohemian Grove Logging Approved

From BACH(Bay Area Coalition for Headwaters):
Bohemian Grove Logging Approved
At the very end of 2009, while most people were on holiday, the state approved a long-sought logging plan for the Bohemian Grove, the 130-year-old exclusive club in a beautiful redwood forest in Sonoma County that has served as a much-guarded playground and hobnob haven for the very rich, conservative and powerful male membership. The logging plan skirts public review and government oversight and proposes to cut as much as 1.7 million board feet of timber. See more at the Save Bohemian Grove website, including the Dec. 31 SF Chronicle article about the approval.

UPDATE: 1/28/10

The Sierra Club et al today filed a lawsuit in Sonoma County Superior Count against the California Department of Forestry and Fire Protection (CALFIRE) to prevent implementation of a logging plan for the Bohemian Club approved by the Department on December 29, 2009. The full text of the legal petition is attached.
