Wyden's plan creates jobs, protects forests
Oregon's historic forests are the most beautiful in America, and have been the backbone of our economy for generations. Ron Wyden has negotiated and wrote the historic Eastside Forest Plan that will protect 8.3 million acres of forestland in six national forests east of Cascades bringing back critical timber jobs for rural Oregon.
Join Ron's campaign and take a stand to protect our environment while creating good Oregon jobs. Look at what people are saying:
"It's a crucial agreement that means healthier forests, survival for the dwindling number of eastside lumber mills and hundreds of jobs for struggling rural Oregon communities. " – The Oregonian
"It is the closest thing to a lifeline that Eastern Oregon's fire-prone forests and struggling communities have had in years.” - John Day's Blue Mountain Eagle
“For decades environmentalists and timber communities have been at war. Ron Wyden made history, bringing both sides together to hammer out a balanced plan that doubles the harvest and improves the health of our forests puts people back to work in our forests, while protecting our natural treasures.”
– John Shelk, Ochoco Lumber, Prineville
Ron has consistently stood for protecting our environment and for creating good Oregon jobs - let's stand with him today.
