Film exposes harmful logging practices in Oregon — Coos Bay World

November 19, 2015 — The World

COOS BAY — Pacific Rivers is screening its new film, “Behind the Emerald Curtain,” which exposes Oregon’s harmful and outdated logging practices for private lands: clearcutting, clearcutting on steep slopes, rampant road building, logging through small streams, and aerial spraying of toxic, carcinogenic pesticides.

The film calls for more balance in how private timberlands are managed in Oregon. It was produced by Pacific Rivers and Shane Anderson of North Fork Studios. See the preview atwww.pacificrivers.org/#emeraldvideo.

Screening will begin at 7:30 p.m. Thursday, Nov. 19, at 7 Devils Brewing Co., 247 S. Second St., Coos Bay.

Formerly Pacific Rivers Council, the group is renamed Pacific Rivers, with a new logo, and soon to come a new website. The work has not changed: to continue to build support for and advance scientifically sound policies that protect rivers and clean water by promoting healthy watersheds. Pacific Rivers exposes harm to rivers, water, and communities from Oregon logging.

Screenings will be added throughout the fall. For a screening or photos, contactnatalie@pacificrivers.org, 503-778-0072.
