(Doors open at 5:30 pm) In 2017, LCCR successfully passed a ballot measure which bans aerial spraying of pesticides in Lincoln County!
Meeting at the North Coast Recreation District building: 36155 9th St. in Nehalem. Free and open to the public of all ages. Music by Brandon Tigner and his Tree Hugging Songs. Light refreshments served.

Rockaway Beach Citizens for Watershed Protection started in 2011 when a group of neighbors in Rockaway Beach, Oregon watched as the Jetty Creek watershed, the source of their drinking water, was clearcut logged at an alarming rate and then aerial-sprayed with pesticides. In the last decade, about 90% of that watershed has been clearcut; thereby, causing highly detrimental effects to the drinking water and natural habitat. We have now grown to represent other communities up and down the North Coast of Oregon that face similar difficulties; therefore, our new name, North Coast Communities for Watershed Protection, reflects our working together on a regional basis to insure that the air we breathe and the water we drink are safe.

North Coast Communities for Watershed Protection meets at NCRD the 2nd Tuesday of every month. Please join us! This is the first of a special “Speak Truth to Power” series of talks. | | |
