The event to celebrate the 50th Anniversary of the Wilderness Act hosted by KEEN at its flagship store in Portland, Oregon was a great success. About 300 people came to see the photo exhibit, enjoying the snacks, beer and music provided by KEEN. It was also a great time to catch up with friends and meet new ones. The stunning photographs of Oregon wilderness highlighted the many amazing and magnificent places in Oregon that need wilderness protection. Many people were also interested to hear the on-going efforts to protect these areas by the Sierra Club High Desert Committee, ONDA and Oregon Wild. Both ONDA and Sierra Club High Desert Committee have been focusing on protecting the Owyhee Canyonlands in the southeast Oregon. To find out more about the campaign, check out our brochure here: http://oregon.sierraclub.org/conserv/hidsrt/media/pdf/Owyhee%20Brochure.pdf

Take action! Visit these wilderness places and see for yourself these splendid wild places of Oregon!

Oregon Legislative Update – Protecting Our Environment

March 23, 2009

A quick update from the Oregon Legislature. There’s only a little more than one month left for bills to pass out of their committee of origin before they either die or make it to the next level. We’ve got write ups with up-to-date information on some of the key bills we are tracking at http://www.oregon.sierraclub.org/tracker.

We have three ‘action alerts’ set up to make it easy for you to send emails to your legislator on these bills. The one on HB 2534 is brand new, in advance of a public hearing on Tuesday, March 24. The three action alerts are:

Cap and Reduce Greenhouse Gas Pollution – Supporter SB 80 and HB 2186

Stopping LNG terminals and pipelines – Support HB 2015

Pass the Oregon Environmental Quality Act – Yes on HB 2534

Please consider sending an email to your Rep. and the House Environment and Water Committee in support of HB 2534 in advance of the Tuesday hearing.
