    Stand by Your Land: Keeping Public Lands in Public Hands

    Keen Garage

    From the Oregon Coast to Steen Mountain, the Rogue River to Mt Hood, Oregon is defined by its public lands. They are the places we work and play, owned and cherished by all of us. They provide habitat for fish and wildlife, and clean water. Unfortunately, our public lands are under attack. It isn't just armed militants at a remote Wildlife Refuge. Politicians and polluting industries are trying to cut you off from your public lands, or sell them to the highest bidder.

    At a public forum hosted by the Oregon Public Lands Alliance (OPLA), learn why our public lands are important, what is being done to protect these precious landscapes, and walk away with the tools and knowledge to tell the Trump Administration and their polluting industry allies to keep their hands off our public lands!

    The program will feature detailed presentations from Oregon Wild, the Audubon Society of Portland, the Oregon Natural Desert Association, and Bark on the many values of public lands and the current proposals to take them away. Panelists will also discuss the successful campaign to keep the Elliott State Forest public and the role Oregon’s public lands play in fighting global climate change.

    Reception with beer and appetizers to follow discussion.
