Tell Decision Makers: Expanding clear-cut logging of old-growth timber by eliminating the Roadless Rule would harm the people & economy of Southeast Alaska. 

Rob interviews Kayla Roys of Trout Unlimited Alaska about the current administration's attempt to allow logging in the Tongass. Kayla hunts, fishes, forages, explores, and lives within the Tongass. You will learn why this delicate ecosystem declared 'wilderness' and 'roadless' requires protection and why Trump's plans as always don't make sense.
