SAVE BAGBY HOTSPRINGS!!

McBagby Hotsprings?!



As you read this, the US Forest Service is tearing up the beautiful old-growth forest trail to Bagby Hotsprings and replacing it with an industrial-strength wreck-creation path (using 400 cubic yards of gravel thats 40 dump trucks, folks). The contractors have license to use dynamite to help restore this trail. Its all part of a plan to develop Bagby from a unique piece of our common heritage to something more like a pay-per-use resort.

Its time to take a stand.

If you have ever experienced the magic of Bagby Hotsprings, youll know whats at stake. Come to the inaugural meeting of the Defenders of Bagby to save our springs from the Forest Service.

Tried to send to  defenedbagby@subdimension.com but this was returned.

Hello-

I would like to know if the Friends of Bagby Hot Spring is still active and
what their stance is? It is important to get everyone involved.

How about the local residents who will see an increase in traffic?

My opinion is that its remoteness and primitiveness of Bagby is what keeps it
magical. Propose an alternative like developing Austin Hot Springs as its
location is roadside.

I live in Eugene so will not be able to make the meeting so please pass thes
ideas along.

In Solidarity,
Chris Raydon-Feeney

i love the feeling of climbing up to bagby hotspring. there is not many people and it is sooo quiet excluding the rushing river on your left side. making a cement road just ruins the whole idea. let's keep it like it is.
