Oregon State Forests in danger


A move is currently underway to log huge swaths of Oregons Coastal watersheds. Oregon's coastal streams currently produce some of the last healthy runs of Chinook and Steelhead in the lower 48 and support listed Coho salmon. Previous logging activity in the 60's, 70's and 80's had extrodinarily detrimental effects on these systems and it is important that we as a community unite to fight this proposal. If you live in Oregon, or if you are passionate about the Oregon Coast, do your best to show up and voice your opinion that timber harvest at the expense of healthy rivers and fish is not something you will allow. The Flyer is pictured above. For more info check out Jeff Hickman's blog at theriverwrites.wordpress.com
