Rally to Protect What’s Left

WHEN: Thursday, May 6, 2021 @ 4:00 PM
WHERE: Oregon State Capitol—Wilson Park (westside gazebo)
900 Court St. Salem, OR 97301
As communities across Oregon continue to rebuild after the 2020 fire season, timber corporations and ill-equipped agencies are clear-cut logging large swaths of fire-burned public lands. Join us Thursday, May 6 at 4:00pm at the Oregon State Capitol – Wilson Park (westside gazebo), 900 Court St. Salem, OR 97301 and tell Governor Brown to put a halt to the reckless post-fire logging.
Industrial logging degrades our public lands and recreation areas, threatens drinking water, endangers firefighters, and places rural communities in further risk of wildfire danger. Sadly, places like the Santiam Canyon, McKenzie and North Umpqua rivers have recently been transformed by rampant post-fire logging. And this is only the beginning of the logging planned.
