Join the "Forest Block" at March For Science PDX 2018! On April 14, dozens of forest defenders and wildlife advocates will be marching together in support of #science, #publiclands, and native wildlife. #ForestDefenseisClimateDefense!
We'll be meeting in front of the Oregon Wild and Bark tables, which will be located at Pioneer Courthouse Square. If you'd like to help make signs/props, join us on April 10 for an Art Make Party at Bark's office (more info here: tinyurl.com/y7qgnmg9).
Why #MarchforScience? The Trump administration's hostile relationship to scientific facts and research has had devastating consequences for the planet. The administration has continually undermined the role science plays in environmental policy, affecting everything from climate change regulations to public lands protections.
In the coming weeks, Trump may attempt to shrink Oregon's Cascade-Siskiyou National Monument, which is the only Monument ever created for the primary purpose of preserving biological diversity. The Monument was created largely in response to years of advocacy from dozens of scientists who have argued that his scientifically significant intersection of three eco-regions must be protected, but that progress could be easily undone if Trump issues an Executive Order.
Join us on April 14 to show your support for our the Cascade-Siskiyou, sound forest management, and the scientific process itself!
