President Trump and Congress, with the help of Rep. Greg Walden, are attempting to shrink the Cascade-Siskiyou National Monument, opening up these protected public lands to aggressive logging and other development. In the face of unprecedented threats to our wild places, defenders of public lands need to band together.
Join the Oregon Natural Desert Association, Oregon Wild, Great Old Broads for Wilderness- Bitterbrush Broads, Juniper Group- Sierra Club and the Vocal Seniority for a community forum about the Cascade-Siskiyou National Monument and other threats posed to public lands.
Monumental Threat: Defending Oregon's Cascade-Siskiyou National Monument Wednesday, February 21, 6-8 p.m. (Doors open at 5:30 p.m.)
10 Barrel Brewing Company Eastside Banquet Room, 62950 NE 18th St., Bend
Our program will include a presentation by special guest Dave Willis, a long-time advocate for the Cascade-Siskiyou and chair of the Soda Mountain Wilderness Council. Dave will talk about the history of the monument, its unique ecology and why it is worth protecting. We’ll also hear about the wider fight over public lands across the west, followed by a short overview on how you can get involved on the grassroots level.
