RBCWP Public Meeting
October 9, 2018 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm
Featured Speakers: Dr. Victoria Holt, Epidemiologist, and Jeremy Sappington, Public Health Professor Emeritus
Jeremy Sappinton and Victoria Holt, both retired U of W public health faculty, will participate in a roundtable discussion on health issues related to widespread pesticide use in industrial forestry.
These practices have damaged, and continue to damage our coastal watersheds and impact the places we live and recreate. The members of Rockaway Beach Citizens for Watershed Protection want to ensure that the air we breathe and water we drink is safe. The aerial spraying of pesticides near our communities remains a concerning public health issue. Other Oregon locations such as Triangle Lake, Gold Beach, and Lincoln City have documented human exposure and related health concerns from forestry pesticide spraying in their communities.
Join us for this important discussion. We will examine risks these pesticides pose to people, coastal forest habitat, and the wildlife our watersheds support.
