Here are five ways to help protect Pinyon-Juniper Forests.
1. Join us
“The best way to make a difference as a lone individual is to join a group.”
Every supporter of this campaign should sign up for our email list. We send infrequent emails with ways to support, events, and news about Pinyon-Juniper Forest protection.
Also, we recommend you become a member of the Alliance. It’s free and easy—and the more members we have, the better. Want to get more involved? If you can help us organize by passing out flyers, gathering signatures, or organizing an event, contact us!
2. Be a vocal forest defender
Our campaign is organized around creative, insistent, strategic resistance to forest destruction. We’ll highlight and share any work to protect Pinyon-Juniper forests that falls under this umbrella, from sign-waving and banner drops to public speak-outs, petitions, and land occupation. Get in touch if you want to collaborate.
