Walden's Clearcut Act needs your action!

Friday, September 29, 2017 - 14:00

Come on, you Indivisible “POPers”, let’s get on the phone and let Walden’s office hear from us about what he’s trying to do right here in our back yard with his latest HR 3715 “Scenic Columbia Gorge Restoration Act”. He’s taking advantage of the media hype over the recent Eagle Creek fire to require restoration "response activity" (commercial clearcutting) of multiple areas in increments up to 10,000 acres each that has been “impacted” (no definition of what constitutes an impact) INSIDE the Columbia Gorge National Scenic Area. In some cases it specifically precludes the public’s right to file an injunction. These are our public lands we’re talking about! Our National Scenic Area! If our public forests need salvage logging to be done after a catastrophic event that logging should be done in accordance with scientific analysis of what to cut and should be open for public input. It should not be done in the name of special interests. Please paste the following linked highlights of HR 3715 into your browser and then give him an ear full! https://www.oregonwild.org/about/press/bill-analysis-columbia-gorge-clea...
