Earlier this spring, Senator Ron Wyden teamed up with Senator Merkley to introduce a package of Wilderness and Wild and Scenic bills in Congress. These bills aim to protect some of Oregon's most iconic lands and rivers, including the Rogue River, Cathedral Rock, Horse Heaven, the Molalla and Chetco rivers and Devil's Staircase. By introducing and fighting for these bills in Congress, Senator Wyden and Senator Merkley have continued to show their commitment to protecting Oregon's special wild places and rivers, as well as supporting our recreation economy.

This work on Wilderness, as well as other key investments like full funding for the Land and Water Conservation Fund, which uses no taxpayer money to protect local and national parks and forests, are terrific steps in the right direction. This strong support also shows that the Senators will continue to reject any efforts to strip protections from national parks, forests, monuments and other public lands, which provide our companies a competitive advantage.

Please take a moment to thank Senators Wyden and Merkley for standing up for conservation and the outdoor community here in Oregon.
