Mary Scurlock of the Oregon Stream Protection Coalition, a long-time advocate for Oregon’s waterways, will speak on “Private Forests, Public Waters:  How and Why Oregon is Failing its Forest Streams” on Tuesday, May 14, 6 p.m. (doors open at 5:30) at the North Coast Recreation District building (36155 9th St.) in Nehalem.  The event, sponsored by the North Coast Communities for Watershed Protection, is free and open to all.

Her presentation, part of the sponsor’s “Speak Truth to Power” series, will review harmful logging and road impacts on water quality and aquatic habitat in Oregon, compare Oregon’s water protection requirements with those in other states, and describe barriers to and opportunities for change through citizen action.
