The Oregon Department of Forestry is holding a series of hearings to gather public comments on proposed stream protection rules. The rules, which have been eight years in the making, modestly increase restrictions on logging near some streams on some of Oregon’s private forest land in Western Oregon.
Proposed forested buffers are a modest, but inadequate step to protect streams from warming.
We need you to come support stronger rules for fish, clean water, and wildlife.
Join us in Forest Grove for this important hearing.
