About this event:

See event details
This is an opportunity to collaborate with Cascadia Wildlands and UO’s Outdoor Program to kayak the Coos Bay terminal site and land-scout the pipeline route planned for the estuary.

KAYAKING: If you want to participate in the kayak tour please register at: https://org2.salsalabs.com/o/5868/p/salsa/event/common/public/?event_KEY=87707

There are 45 kayaking spots – 18 are filled. Register to reserve your place.

For safety and liability issues the “ask” is NOT to use your own kayak but rather to rent one (for a $20 fee) from the UO’s Outdoor Program. The plan is for 15 folks at a time to be led on the water to learn about the terminal as well as two “land scouting” opportunities to learn about the proposed pipeline and its effects.

CAMPING (Saturday June 30th & Sunday July 1st): 350EUG has a connection for a free camping opportunity, approx. 30 min from Coos Bay, to make it easy for us to participate on Sunday in the “scouting” of the proposed export terminal and on Monday, July 2nd, from 5:00 – 6:00 pm, to join the direct action against this project lead by the youth of Civil Liberties Defense Center’s Next Generation Climate Justice Camp. The direct action is the culmination of the camp. (Due to the July 4th holiday weekend, the local group camp sites are full.) Details on the action TBD. Let’s support the next generation of activists!

We are welcome to camp Saturday and Sunday nights on the property of a local person who is opposed to the project. We can have campfires and good companionship with friends! We’d like folks to contribute $5-$10 so we can buy a small appreciation gift for our hostess.

TO SIGN UP FOR CAMPING & CARPOOLING FROM EUGENE: Contact our amazing camp coordinator Carolyn Partridge at: carpart97405@yahoo.com.

You are most welcome to come for the day or stay for one or two nights!

Time for us to stand up to this project while enjoying our beautiful and beloved Oregon Coast with our good activist friends!
