Support a Campaign

Join us for our public meetings!

We meet every Monday 5:30-6:30pm. 454 Willamette St. upstairs of Growers Market in Eugene (Door between Belly’s and Morning Glory). If you aren’t able to attend meetings, friend Cascadia Forest Defenders  on Facecrack or email forestdefensenow@gmail.com 

Be patient; many of our organizers live part-time away from the city and may take a Cascadian minute to respond to your inquiries. But we are very happy to hear from you!

 A successful campaign is won through a diversity of tactics… which requires a diversity of people. If you can’t leave town often or participate in legally precarious activities, we are just as eager for more help and experience organizing media, doing food pick-ups, volunteering and fliering for our events, researching and scouting timber sales, etc. We need web gurus just as much as we need tree climbers.

I only have a little bit of time.

A number of your elected representatives are personally responsible for the destruction of Oregon’s wilderness. The State Land Board has plans to sell the Elliott State Forest. Please contact the following members of the Board and tell them not to sell off our children’s future to the highest bidder!’

I have money.

Donate Button

Cash and checks made out to Cascadia Forest Defenders can be mailed to Earth First, P.O. Box 96, Eugene, OR 97440.

We are a small collective, not a federally recognized non-profit. Donations support: food and gear for backwoods actions, gas to fuel everything from public hikes to tree-sits, small stipends for workshop presenters, legal support for broke as hell arrestees. We don’t have any overhead or paid employees, so everything you give goes directly to the campaign. If you want to support a specific aspect of our campaign, just make a note with your donation so that we can direct your hard earned dollars in the right direction: i.e. “legal donations for the tree-sit arrests.”

Have old stuff you don’t need? Gear can be dropped off or sent to the Lorax Manner, 1648 Alder, Eugene OR 97401. Make sure that it is labelled for CFD, and contact us ahead of time so that we know to expect it.

WISHLIST: Tents, rain gear, tarps, non-cotton clothing, non-perishable food, small camp stoves, water filters, first aid kits, banner making supplies, batteries, tools. Laptop, gps, video camera(s), battery powered charging devices, walkie talkies.
