There are many ways one can participate in forest preservation, even simply recycling can create a huge impact over time. Forest preservation, risks and causes should be topics that everyone should know about, which is why I created this website. My name is Kad Foster and I have been working in forest conservation in Klamath Falls, Oregon, for many years. From a young age I knew how important protecting wildlife, water sources and trees was, after all, these are all vital elements that sustain life. I am passionate about the projects I work on with fellow preservationists for Pacific forests and wanted to extend my knowledge to others that might be curious about joining the cause.
What You Can Do
There are so many ways in which you can help, all it takes is a little mindfulness. Changing in small ways might not seem like it does anything but trust me, it does. If everyone made these small changes, the forest, waters, animals and even human beings would be all the better for it.
- Recycle– Recycling glass, paper and cans, not only reduces waste but lowers the need to produce more of these items. Especially paper. The more we toss out paper, the more trees we have to cut down but by recycling these products, the need for paper starts to decrease.
- Don’t litter– This might sound obvious but people continue to do it. You might think one time isn’t a big deal but imagine 7 billion people thinking that way and littering all at once. The impact that littering has on wildlife and our water supply is drastic. Next time, hold on to that candy wrapper until you can properly dispose of it.
- Use caution during summer months– When it’s in the upper 80’s and 90’s and the air is dry, fires can easily start, spread and become chaotic. Killing fires properly and following park rules about fires during certain months is not only safe but is a huge way you can help keep woodland areas safe. Fires are devastating to the life that lives in the woods and causes huge setbacks in forest preservation when one gets out of hand.
You don’t have to be on the front lines when it comes to protecting and caring for nature. Just be aware of what you’re doing and how your choices might affect the environment.
