Photo Thursday!

Oregon-Wild-OC-Lands

 

This week's photo comes to us from Oregon Wild!

Breathtaking, isn't it?

Join Shawn from Mountain Rose Herbs and other concerned community members for a presentation about the future of public forestlands like this in western Oregon - also known as the O&C lands.

These forests provide 1.8 million Oregonians with clean drinking water, offer habitat for imperiled fish and wildlife, and store incomparable amounts of carbon, yet politicians are looking to ramp up cutting on these “backyard” forests in order to fund county services.

 

Come learn about what's at risk, alternative solutions, and what you can do...
