Blog post by Dan Serres, Riverkeeper’s Conservation Director—
On Saturday, January 12th, over 50 people joined to walk along a Warrenton City trail near the Skipanon Peninsula – site of the Oregon LNG export terminal proposal. On a frosty morning, families, dogs, and long-time LNG activists gathered to familiarize themselves with the area that has been targeted by Oregon LNG and its New York-based funder, Leucadia National, for a massive LNG export terminal. The walk was led by Jim Scheller, a local expert who has worked for years to protect and restore wetlands and salmon habitat in the Warrenton area. Oregonians from four counties joined the walk, sharing thoughts and ideas about how we can organize to stop the LNG export threat on the Columbia River.
We will be holding more events in coming months to educate, engage, and empower people to stop LNG export in Oregon. To learn more about our fight to stop Oregon LNG’s export proposal, please contact Dan Serres at firstname.lastname@example.org.
