We are excited to announce a free educational event (hosted on Zoom) which will feature a talk by Deke Gundersen, Ph.D., a toxicologist and Director of the Environmental Studies Department at Pacific University.
He has consulted with North Coast Communities for Watershed Protection (NCCWP) over the years and has expert insights regarding the impact of pesticide chemicals on health.
At the meeting, we will also update you on our efforts to end clearcut logging and pesticide spraying in our drinking watersheds, regardless of land ownership. We will discuss upcoming volunteer opportunities (including a petition effort in the works) and direct actions you can take to protect our forests, watersheds and the health of our communities.
We look forward to seeing you there! Register at our webpage www.healthywatershed.org.
The health of our communities, as well as the forests and watersheds we depend on, is at stake due to the practices of large, industrial forestry operations. Fortunately, an upswell of momentum continues to build around Oregon’s forests and drinking watersheds right now. It’s the perfect time to get involved and help us work to safeguard and restore our drinking water sources, forests, and air quality.
Regardless of who actually owns the land, by law, all water in Oregon is publicly owned. All watersheds that supply wells, spring boxes, or municipal systems should be legislatively protected. In recognition of the necessity of clean and safe drinking water for all, as a matter of law, there should be no more logging nor pesticide spraying in drinking water sources.
We are advocating for the critical need to prioritize the health of our communities and put DRINKING WATER FIRST!
North Coast Communities for Watershed Protection (formerly Rockaway Beach Citizens for Watershed Protection) is a grassroots group working, through education and advocacy, for better protections of the water we drink, the air we breathe, and the forests that sustain us.
