Thank You For Protecting Our Rivers!

When elected leaders do good, we thank them.

Please take a minute to thank Senators Wyden and Merkley for protecting wild places today

Today, the U.S. Senate passed the Natural Resources Management Act (S. 47), including the Oregon Wildlands Act (S. 1548), the Frank and Jeanne Moore Wild Steelhead Act (S. 513/H.R. 1308), and the reauthorization of the Land and Water Conservation Fund,. The package now heads to the U.S. House where we are hopeful it will pass and be signed into law.

KS Wild an allies have worked for over ten years to secure southwest Oregon protections in this bill - these include:

  • Protecting the upper Chetco River from mining claims.

  • Expanding Wild & Scenic protections for streams feeding the Wild Rogue River.

  • Expanding Wild & Scenic protections for streams feeding the Elk River.
