From Jeanine Moy at KS Wild.
Since January, we have witnessed both outright crazy threats to public lands AND the power of communities that come together to take a stand: anti-public land bills have been repealed, the Elliot State Forest saved, and most recently huge showings of support for National Monuments like Bears Ears and our local Cascade-Siskiyou.
As a fellow community member that values public lands for providing shared resources; clean water, recreation opportunities, thriving communities, wildlife habitat, local tourism etc., I hope that you will join in with outdoor businesses, conservation groups, outfitters, farmers, students, scientists and other community members for a huge event next month:
“This Land is Our Land – celebration of public lands”
July 27th, 2017
Medford Commons: 4pm – 6pm (tabling, games, music, speakers)
Common Block Brewery: 6pm-7pm (happy hour)
This event is going to be the largest of its kind in our region, standing in solidarity with other events to support public lands, happening throughout the West on July 27th. It will be a terrific way to come together with our community and network for future collaborations.
