Climate change is rapidly altering many of the special places, wildlife, and communities that we love. Fortunately, bedrock federal environmental laws passed a half-century ago can help us address these changes by advocating for more protective land and wildlife management.

Join the Central & Eastern Oregon Bitterbrush Broadband for a presentation from Lizzy Potter, a Staff Attorney at Advocates for the West, to learn about these issues and her work to protect and defend sensitive species, waterways, and communities. She will spotlight a recent victory in the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals, which faulted the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service for ignoring how livestock grazing exacerbates the harmful effects of climate change on the threatened Oregon spotted frog.
