Coastal citizens concerned about the impact of clearcut logging on public drinking water supplies are invited to a special training session for those interested in getting involved in the issue, taking place on Wednesday, Jan. 27, at 5 p.m.  The focus is on building grassroots campaigns to challenge clearcutting.

The goal of this training is to offer concrete tools to assist Oregon's communities in monitoring and defending their drinking water supplies, and to further chart a path for lasting reform of Oregon's weak logging laws.

Speakers include: Nancy Webster—North Coast Communities for Watershed Protection; Teresa Bird—Kalmiopsis Audubon Society; Betsy Herbert—Watershed Scientist; Dylan Plummer—Cascadia Wildlands.

Panelists will share their insights and experience in:
* How to use Oregon’s timber sale tracking system (FERNS) to monitor logging operations in your drinking water supply
*Tools and techniques for challenging destructive logging projects
* Strategies for engaging with decision-makers
* Effective approaches to growing grassroots power and winning
