In keeping with national Audubon’s work in advocating for a healthy environment, the Mount Shasta chapter has a long history of involvement with forest issues in the area. Currently the chapter has partnered with the Siskiyou Land Trust, Shasta Resource Conservation District, and U.S. Natural Resources and Conservation Service on the Rainbow Ridge Forest Restoration Demonstration Project.
