Oregon Wild Campaigns Against Clearcuts

Oregon Wild executive director Sean Stevens explains the opposition to Congressional action on shifting management of Western Oregon timberlands.

Congress returns to business today, and a key item of business for the region is up for consideration.  Members of Congress from both parties in Oregon support a plan to divide the former O & C lands managed by the federal government, with a portion managed intensively for timber (and county revenue).  Opponents are mounting a campaign against the measure, under the banner "Oregon Home of the Clearcut."
