Pipe Fork Creek Hike – 6/20

Safeway Center (Williams Hwy) Parking Lot by Key Bank

Join supporters of saving the Josephine County land associated with Pipe Fork.

Josephine County owns a 320 acre parcel of “timberland,” that is directly adjacent to the roadless wildlands and the Pipe Fork RNA. One or more of our Commissioners want to sell it for clearcut logging. The Josephine County Forestry Department has proposed to clearcut 114 acres of mature conifer forest, and under the Oregon Forest Practices Act, would likely not only log off this important forested habitat, but would also likely “treat” stump sprouting hardwoods like madrone, live oak, tanoak and chinquapin with herbicides after the logging is completed.

Join us in a hike through this beautiful area! Will meet at the Safeway Center parking lot by Key Bank (Williams Hwy) at 8:45AM, then break into car pools. Wear study shoes and appropriate attire for a multi-hour hike. Question? Email environment@josephinedemocrats.org
