What kind of games is the Forest Service playing?
Come in costume as wildlife, skiers, lawyers, corporate execs, hikers,
mountain bikers, the forest service and any of the other puzzle pieces
in this sell-out of the north-east side of the mountain for a rockin'
game of hide and seek, to illustrate what the Forest Service is doing
with the facts surrounding the various projects planned for Cooper
Spur.

The Clan Timber Sale proposes to log 232 acres ranging from mature
lodgepole pine and grand fir to older ponderosa pine and douglas firs.
They plan to get 2.3 million board of timber from this sale.


Stop the fragmentation of habitat for deer, elk and raptors!
Maintain genetic links between east-side and west-side old growth
species. Protect the Hood River Valley's drinking water!

Carpools from Portland meet at Daily Grind (SE Hawthorn & 40th Ave.) at
7:15 AM & leave at 7:30 AM SHARP!

Carpools from Mt. Hood meet at the Mt. Hood Town Hall at 7:15 AM &
leave at 7:30 AM Sharp

The Mt. Hood Supervisor's Office is on the south side of Highway 26,
just as you are entering Sandy from the west. There is a right hand
turn off of Hwy 26 onto Champion Way which puts you almost immediately
into the Forest Service parking lot. If coming from the east, you must
turn left at the last traffic light in Sandy (past the last of the
strip malls on the west side of town), then take the first right into an
empty industrial park, then right again and you are on Champion Way. Follow
Champion Way a short way to the Forest Service office.


4 Biggest Threats to the Cooper Spur Area

1. The Pollalie-Cooper Timber Sales (Clan is one out of 3)!
2. The expansion of the Cooper Spur ski area from 50 to as much as 1400
acres.
3. A massive resort development on private land just outside the Mt.
Hood National Forest boundary.
4. The Clear Timber Sales

Q: What are the cumulative impacts of these four threats?
A: No one knows because no one (including the U.S. Forest Service) has
done an adequate assessment!
