Hello NCCWP friends!
Thanks to all of you for your support of our ongoing efforts to protect our community watersheds. We’re excited to invite you to our first open community meeting of 2022!The meeting will take place Tuesday, February 8th 11:30AM-12:30pm, via Zoom (Here is the link to join!)
We’ll all have a chance to reconnect and share updates about the important work we are doing to protect the health of our drinking watersheds this year and into the future.
We’re also honored to share a special research presentation about the effects of pesticides on our North Coast communities, and what you can do to get involved.
There will be a Q&A session following the presentation, and we’d love to hear from you about any effects of logging practices in your community.
A little more about the presentation:
Bryn Clodfelter has finished her senior project at Pacific University, and published her health study on acute illnesses among Nehalem and Wheeler residents as they relate to the mass spraying of pesticides.
Her study was conducted between November 2020 and February 2021, and concludes that something is driving up the rates of acute illnesses among area residents. Bryn will present her findings and will be available for questions.
As we begin this new year, North Coast Communities for Watershed Protection acknowledges the urgency of the environmental realities of the moment, and we have recommitted to advocating for Oregon forest management practices that do not impact healthy drinking water or clean air in our communities. We’re doubling down on our community efforts to best serve the long-term future of our shared watersheds, and planet Earth!
We hope to see you next Tuesday, February 8th from 11:30am-12:30pm!
