John Muir Project

For more than 25 years, the John Muir Project (JMP) has been at the forefront of the fight to protect our national forests, national parks, roadless areas, and other federal public lands from logging to ensure that these forests can fully support native plants and animals, contribute the most toward mitigating climate change, and create the best opportunities for respite and recreation. JMP relies on in-house original scientific research, forest watch, public education, national policy development, and the enforcement of environmental laws through litigation to ensure that our native forest ecosystems will be shaped by natural processes, such as fire, rather than chainsaws and profit.
