Controversial timber sale near Elwha River moving forward

The  Washington state Department of Natural Resources has its priorities backward.

A controversial state timber sale near the Elwha River is moving forward despite a legal challenge from a coalition of community groups and elected officials.

The groups say the 126 acres in the “Power Plant” timber sale are too close to the Elwha, and logging the mature forest there will compromise high-profile efforts to restore habitat for endangered salmon in the watershed after dam removal.
