The rally to save the Wild Siskiyou's was held yesterday just outside Selma Oregon. The Rally drew car pools of forest supporter's and defenders from the Siskiyou's area, Ashland, Eugene, and Portland. The Rally had a diverse group of folk's, cool music, dancing trees and salmon, and inspiring speakers. In the background was the wild and endangered Siskiyou National Forest. The rally gave a feeling of empowerment and awareness of what is at stake if we don't act now. It served as a call to action to preserve this wild, beautiful and brilliant national forest. It ended by providing everyone a way in which they could plug into various actions to save a unique and completely wild national forest from taming. |
