Spend Your Summer In The Trees!

Have you ever wished you could spend a few weeks – or months – in the forest?

Have you ever passed a clear cut and wanted to make sure that forests are no longer treated like that?

Did you know that deforestation is the second largest contributor to climate change behind fossil fuels?

Would you like to do something about it?

Join us in the forest for Cascadia Summer 2009!

What – A chance to directly defend our forests and climate!

When – Action Camp (trainings!) in May, ongoing actions all summer!

Where – Western Oregon’s Public Lands! (exact location TBA)

Why:

Deforestation is the NUMBER 2 cause of climate change according to NASA

Northwest Forests store MORE CARBON per acre than any other forest in the WORLD

With out grassroots intervention over 25,000 acres of Oregon’s PUBLIC FOREST will be cut this summer.

Solutions to Climate Change MUST involve healthy forests!
