On December 10 at 9:30 am, citizens from across western Oregon will descend on the State Land Board meeting in Salem (775 Summer St. NE) and hold a rally encouraging Governor John Kitzhaber, Secretary of State Kate Brown, and Treasurer Ted Wheeler to protect critical forestlands on the Elliott State Forest that are being considered for disposal. Speakers will discuss the pressing issues facing our coastal state forests, and members of the Brazilian-inspired percussion group, Samba Ja, will be on hand creating infectious musical rhythms. Rallygoers are encouraged to present oral testimony to the State Land Board, bring signs and make noise about the dire need to safeguard the at-risk primary rainforest on the Elliott.
