Hike and Bike the Threatened Thurston Hills
November 3, 2018 @ 10:30 am - 2:00 pm
WHAT: Join Cascadia and Climate Justice League for a visit to the proposed Thurston Hills clearcut proposal. The Northwest District of the Bureau of Land Management is planning to clearcut log 100 acres of this public forest adjacent to the recently opened 665-acre Thurston Hills Natural Area as part of the “Pedal Power” timber sale. Cascadia Wildlands is part of a coalition opposing this irresponsible timber sale because of the negative impacts that clearcutting this forests would have on recreation, wildlife, and nearby community members.
WHEN: Saturday, November 3rd, 10:30-2pm
WHERE: We’ll meet at the North trailhead in the Thurston Hills Natural Area (7575 McKenzie Hwy) for a short orientation and then set off to hike or bike and explore the area. Carpools leave from Mac Court on UO campus at 10am. We’ll follow up our hike with a discussion and opportunity for people to get involved with our resistance to this timber sale.
This hike is free and open to the public. Bring snacks, water, plant id books, and a friend!
