Short Description of Activity
Forty Broads from around Oregon attended the Jordan Cove Broadwalk near Coos Bay, Oregon. We hiked, heard talks from local activists, land owners, scientists about the potential harmful effects of proposed LNG Jordan Cove pipeline. We pulled Scotch Broom from the Oregon Dunes National Monument with USFS and BLM personnel. We had field trip to site where pipeline would enter harbor. We wrote letters to officials.
We cleared Scotch Broom from the Siuslaw Forest. We wrote letters and postcards to various people.
Reflect and Evaluate To educate our Willamette Valley Broadbands to the issues surrounding the purposed Jordan Cove Pipeline.That goal was accomplished! We had impressive speakers. We also did a satisfying job of clearing Scotch Broom from the forest. This activity report is for the 14 Willamette Valley Broadband.
Well organized. Lots of good info. People really got fired up. Tried hard to give free time, which everyone liked.
Willamette Valley Broadband co-leaders Carol Savonen and Cyndi Anderson are armed with shovels for digging out invasive Scotchbroom in the Oregon Dunes National Monument. It was a stewardship project for the Jordan Cove Broadwalk, August 15-19, 2019, on the Oregon Coast. Members from all 4 of Oregon’s Broadbands attended.
