The deep, quiet valley of Beatty Creek is one of the few wild valleys home to big trees and diverse, natural legacy forest left in the Capitol Hills. Here can be found a vibrant, native ecosystem largely untouched in over a century, with large remnant old growth trees that stood watch over the landscape long before Europeans set foot in the Pacific Northwest. Sadly, this beautiful forest is in imminent danger, as the Washington Department of Natural Resources (WA DNR) has put most of the irreplaceable forest here on the chopping block. The Smuggler and Oracle timber sales should be canceled, and the forest granted the permanent protection it deserves.
Let the DNR, Commissioner Hilary Franz, and our elected representatives know that our legacy forests must be protected:

Regarding the video itself, the aerial shots were filmed with the DJI Mavic 3, and the shots on the ground were filmed with the Nikon Z9 + Nikkor Z 14-24 f2.8.
