With the exciting development of introduced legislation for protections of the Wild Rogue, this month is a great time to reengage with the Rogue and the campaigns for its protections. Join Lesley Adams, Program Director of Rogue Riverkeeper, and Shane Jimerfield, our new Siskiyou Wild Rivers Director, on the hike and discuss the history of the region, developments in the campaign, and to learn about important ways that you can play a role in protecting the public lands and tributary streams of the Wild Rogue.
Carpool will leave Evo’s Coffee in Ashland at 9:30am (just downhill from the Chanticleer). Or, meet the group at the Grave Creek Boat Ramp at 11am.
