Save Short Sands from Toxic Spraying!


 

this is your beach

The area surrounding Oswald West State Park and Short Sands Beach has been extensively clearcut and is being sprayed with a mix of toxic chemicals. These chemicals drift into the park and wash directly into the streams that flow to Short Sands beach. We need to encourage Oregon State Parks and our Legislators to demand notification from Weyerhaeuser and post public notification of toxic spray events, and we need to STOP the practice of spraying toxic chemicals near Oregon’s public lands and beaches.

Despite our efforts, on September 28, Weyerhaeuser sprayed the clearcuts surrounding Oswald State Park and Neahkahnie Mountain with no public notification. Park users reported seeing and hearing helicopters, and the spraying was later confirmed by Parks staff.

The area around Short Sands will continue to be regularly sprayed, as will many coastal watersheds and drinking water sources. Get involved to stop the spray! Join Rockaway Beach Citizens for Watershed Protection and our partners Saturday, October 22 for a community workshop. Talk with experts on the issue, meet with your concerned neighbors, and take action to help stop these practices. We will be distributing educational materials, stickers and posters. Join us!
