Cascadia Forest Defenders hold vigil in front of timber baron's home

On Saturday December 23, Sunday December 24, and Monday December 25, Cascadia Forest Defenders and UO's Forest Action held a candlelight vigil in front of the Crest Neighborhood home of Seneca Jones Lumber CEO, Aaron Jones, who continues to log native forests in the McKenzie River watershed, Eugene's source of drinking water.

CFD and Forest Action set up at dusk in front of Jones' sprawling home and his massive display of Christmas lights (which have been attracting hundreds of visitors a night) with a large green and red banner reading: "Pray 4 Aaron Jones to see the light - stop logging our drinking H20 source" and several signs.
