Wed Apr 3 2013 (Updated 04/09/13)Action Camp to Defend Little Lake Valley Established
Wed Apr 3 2013 (Updated 04/09/13)Tree-Sitters Removed as Opposition to CalTrans Bypass Project Grows
On March 30, defenders of Little Lake Valley in Mendocino County announced the establishment of an action camp to oppose the construction of a four-lane superhighway by CalTrans through Little Lake Valley in the town of Willits.
The CalTrans Bypass project would destroy some of the Valley's last remaining wetlands, draining 86 acres — the largest wetlands fill permit in Northern California in 50 years. It is in the process of destroying oak savannas and oak forests throughout the valley and on surrounding hillsides, and, in the process, generating a massive quantity of CO2 emissions. It would severely damage the local economy, while doing remarkably little to prevent traffic congestion.
Resistance to the project has taken the form of tree sits, and on March 28, the tree-sitter known as "Warbler" embarked on a hunger strike. On April 2, the tree-sitters were forcibly removed by the California Highway Patrol, but Warbler has become an icon in the fast-growing campaign in opposition to the Caltrans Bypass project, and her hunger strike continues.
