Activist Toolkit

Oregon Wild can’t fulfill its mission without the support and help of our supporters speaking up for our wildlands, wildlife, and waters as advocates and informed citizens. Our activist toolkit is designed to help our supporters build advocacy skills, gain confidence, and put their passions into action in the democratic process. Whether you’ve never written a note to your legislator or you’ve already testified at a public hearing - we’ve got the tools and info you need to become a stronger voice for the wildlife and wildlands you hold dear!

Making your voice heard

Getting into the issues

Oregon's Wildlife
  • More coming soon!

Public Lands Defense 
  • Defending public forest lands means knowing the agencies, laws, and policies that govern public land.

    • Public forest defense 101 presentation (given in Eugene in August 2018) gives an introduction and some of the ways you can help Oregon Wild weigh in and affect decisions made about timber sales and other activities on our forests. 

    • A more advanced forest protection workshop (given in Eugene in October 2018) offers forest advocates more tools for engaging in forest monitoring and influencing logging and other projects. 

    • Want a step-by-step tutorial on how you (the public) can be involved in forest management activities and decisions? We've got it here!

  • Timber's link to counties: Check out this presentation (April 2019) on the history and relevance of O&C lands in western Oregon, the Association of O&C Counties, and the threat this organization poses to our public lands. The presentation is focused on efforts in Lane County, but the information is broadly applicable.
