Love Your River!
Teresa Huntsinger, Oregon Environmental Council

The north coast landscape is defined by rivers, from the mighty Columbia to the rivers that feed Young’s Bay, from the Necanicum that winds through Seaside to the dynamic Nehalem River that flows from Vernonia to the ocean. At this month’s Listening to the Land program on Wednesday, March 20 at 6pm at the Seaside Public Library, Teresa Huntsinger of the Oregon Environmental Council challenges you to show your favorite river some love.

Using creative programs like their ‘Love Your River’ campaign, the OEC safeguards some of what Oregonians love best about Oregon ­– clean air and water, an unpolluted landscape and healthy food produced by local farmers.Through monthly challenges, they encourage Oregonians to save water, use less pesticides, keep storm drains clear and take on other river-benefitting actions, providing tips and resources to help make doing the right thing for your river easy and fun.

What north coast river do you love? Come find out how you can put that love into action, and keep north coast rivers clean and healthy.
