Learn

The issues facing Cascadia are often complicated and nuanced. We at Cascadia Wildlands take the education aspect of our operations just as seriously as we take the agitation portion. The result of that is a collection of lectures, films, and forums that shed light on our natural world and what we need to do to maintain our wild places.

 

 

 

 

UPCOMING OPPORTUNITIES TO LEARN MORE WITH CASC WILD:

SEPTEMBER:

SEPT. 12th: OMSI Science Pub | 7pm-9pm @ Cozmic, 199 W 8th Ave, Eugene, OR | $5 Suggested Donation

A Look Inside Southeast Alaska’s Tongass National Forest
Join Alaska Wilderness League for a talk with Bob Ferris, executive director of Cascadia Wildlands

The Tongass National Forest represents 30% of the world's remaining temperate coastal rainforest, and it's the largest National Forest in the country. Dubbed "The Salmon Forest,"  the Tongass also acts as a critical carbon sink ameliorating climate change and provides habitat for a myriad of species. Ferris will discuss the interconnectedness of the Tongass, and what that means for the ecosystem — the deer, bear, salmon, wolves, and people who depend on it.

Science Pub Eugene is a monthly event open to anyone aged 21+ (or minor with adult). No RSVP or scientific background required. Just bring your curiosity, sense of humor, and appetite for food, drinks, and knowledge! $5.00 suggested cover charge. Tell your friends. We hope to see you there!

Visit the Alaska Wilderness League website to send your comments to Congress, tell them to Protect the Tongass!!

SEPT. 12th: O & C Public Forum Event in Cottage Grove | 6pm-8pm @ Cottage Grove Community Center, 700 E Gibbs Avenue Cottage Grove, OR | EVENT IS FREE & OPEN TO THE PUBLIC

Politicians at home and in Washington DC are hoping to ramp up logging on our public O&C lands to fund county services, and the options we face are clear: We can protect and restore Oregon's O&C lands – which provide clean drinking water, wildlife habitat, carbon storage, and benefit our quality of life – or we can hand over more than 1.6 million acres of our public lands to exclusive use by the timber industry.

What would you prefer? Which do you think is appropriate?

Join Forest Web of Cottage Grove, Oregon Wild, Cascadia Wildlands, Eugene Weekly, Mountain Rose Herbs, and other community members for a panel discussion and forum on the future of western Oregon's public forestlands. The forum will offer unique perspectives on the value of our BLM forestlands, and give you a chance to discuss what's at stake.

Speakers:
Francis Eatherington, Conservation Director at Cascadia Wildlands
Doug Heiken, Conservation and Restoration Coordinator at Oregon Wild
Ernie Niemi, Senior Economist at ECONorthwest
Shawn Donnille, Vice President of Mountain Rose Herbs

Moderator:
Camilla Mortensen, Assoc. Editor/Reporter of Eugene Weekly

SEPT. 13th: Timber Independence Rally in Roseburg | 12noon-2pm @ Roseburg BLM Office 777 NW Garden Valley Blvd. Roseburg, OR | EVENT IS FREE & OPEN TO THE PUBLIC

Stop the Theft of Our Water and Land by Rich Rabons of Industry: Peaceful Public Rally

Get your local forest advocacy fix on Friday, September 13th at the Roseburg BLM Office, from noon to 2:00 PM. This "Timber Independence Rally", will be a peaceful gathering that will educate and inform folks about our forests and good, bad, and ugly reality facing Douglas County. Be there and have your voice heard! 

The bills being planned by Oregon Representative DeFazio and Senator Wyden in Congress, both the House and Senate, will adversely impact us, the folks who live here. 

  • Our water is our most important resource. All our water comes from the forest. The planned logging will cause us to have less water and more pollution. 

  • Family farmers, organic food growers, and water rate payers who depend upon abundant clean water cannot afford to lose any more water. 

  • Wild Salmon – a potential multi-billion dollar sustainable industry and super food – can replace greedy timber practices. 

  • Tourism and the hospitality industry can become an important economic engine, but not without our forest.

  • Human health and the wellness industry depend on trees and clean water. 

  • Our children’s opportunities for good paying jobs is more than timber. 

  • All of us who depend upon public forests for health and happiness will be affected. 

Come - Why destroy healthy forest to recreate “healthy” forest? Clear cutting increases fire risk. 

Come - Do not let them treat we, the people, for their profit and our loss by keeping us “Timber Dependent”. 

Come - Do not let them take away our healthy public lands with more eco-fake names for clear cuts. Public forest lands must not be destroyed by the same people who clear cut private industrial forest. 

Come – Your presence is absolutely needed to convince our politicians to stop the giveaway of Our Water and Our Forests to Corporate Timber Control.
