GOAL 2:

Agriculture and Forest Practices Act Reform

  • Using the lens of climate justice, overhaul the Oregon Forest Practices Act to eliminate industrial practices of aerially sprayed pesticides, clear cutting, and short rotations on tree plantations.
  • Fight for diverse forest ecosystems and organic farming practices that protect public health and drinking water in rural Oregon, capture carbon, benefit rural Oregonians, and protect farm and forest workers.
  • Support communities to end pesticide poisoning in southern Oregon, working through our Rogue Valley office, board members and staff.
