Lower Columbia River Community Conversation
Join the conversation.
Please join Columbia Riverkeeper for an evening of learning and community.
Riverkeeper is hosting a Community Conversation on Wednesday, March 13, 2013 from 6-7:30pm at the Skamokawa Grange. Join fellow community members to learn about local Columbia River issues and discuss solutions.
“Pressing Columbia River issues have real impacts on local individuals, communities, and economies. We hope to create an opportunity for citizens to share their concerns and discuss solutions,” states Lorri Epstein, Water Quality Director of Columbia Riverkeeper.
The Columbia River faces unprecedented new proposals to export coal, liquefied natural gas (LNG), and crude oil to Asia. How will the new pipelines, trains, and tankers impact the estuary? Current plans could make the Columbia River the nation’s largest exporter of coal, LNG, and oil.
The evening event will feature presentations on Columbia River water quality and new limits on toxic pollution as well as issues surrounding the use of the Columbia River as a fossil fuel highway. There will also be a moderated, open-forum discussion about local concerns and practical solutions. Community members are encouraged to raise additional concerns and opportunities.
All are invited to join the conversation & share your vision for the Columbia River.
