Share Your Story

Because of Covid-19, it's been a long time since North Coast Communities for Watershed Protection has been able to have in-person community gatherings. 

But we're still around, advocating for healthy drinking-water watersheds.

Now, we're looking for TWO THINGS:

  1. Volunteers and
  2. People who are willing to share their stories about how industrial forestry practices have impacted them and/or their community.

If you’d like to take action for the health of your drinking water and forests, please fill out the volunteer sign-up form.  

At NCCWP, we're committed to working for clean drinking water, clean air, and healthy forests, both for people and for all life. (clean drinking water and healthy watersheds)

Currently, over 700 people receive our newsletters and our organization continues to grow. Unsustainable "harvesting" of local forestlands makes it obvious that a healthy environment is imperative for our existence.

Our major initiatives for drinking water protection include:

  • Forestland activity tracking and notifications of such to Coastal residents
  • Public comment and letter writing
  • Legislative action
  • Education, outreach, and community engagement 
  • Storytelling through photojournalism, filmmaking, and videography
  • Support and collaboration with other organizations that have similar goals

An effective way to engage the public can be through storytelling.  Richard Powers, author of the Pulitzer Prize-winning, New York Times bestseller book, The Overstory, states that:

The best arguments in the world won’t change a person’s mind.  The only thing that can do that is a good story.”

In the same spirit, NCCWP invites you to tell your story.  Tell us how industrial forestry practices have personally affected you.  

You can do so by filling out the volunteer sign up form and/or contacting NCCWP’s volunteer coordinator, Maysa Miller at [email protected].
