We have just launched a petition, “Stop Clearcutting, Slash Burns and Pesticide Sprays Near Drinking Water Sources on the Oregon Coast” aimed at building momentum around protecting our forests and drinking watersheds. Please sign the petition and share it with everyone you know!

the link:

The aim is to build up a network of support for our cause, and spread awareness, because many people throughout Oregon and around the nation are unaware of the impacts of current industrial forestry practices in Oregon. We want the eyes of our local communities, as well as the eyes of the world, to turn towards our forests and their watersheds.

We aim to gather 10,000 signatures or more, and we will present the petition to local and state elected officials, timber corporations, and relevant agencies.

Thanks for your help, North Coast Community for Watershed Protection

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. |
