On September 30, more than 2,500 residents and 13 iconic Portland buildings turned off their unnecessary lights, taking part in the 2016 launch of the Audubon Society of Portland’s LightsOut campaign, an effort designed to encourage Portlanders to save energy, save lives and see stars.

Four conservation organizations filed suit today against the Oregon Board of Forestry over dismissal of a petition requesting the Board identify and protect important old-growth forest areas for the marbled murrelet, a seabird threatened with extinction. Under Oregon law, the Board was supposed to have provided such protection after the seabird was protected as threatened under the state Endangered Species Act in 1987.

On September 30, the Audubon Society of Portland will launch its LightsOut Portland Campaign, an initiative designed to encourage Portlanders to save energy, save lives and see stars. We are asking households and businesses to turn off their non-essential lights from dusk until dawn, and then to get out and see the stars. This event marks the start of a longer term effort to address the growing issue of light pollution in the Portland metropolitan region.

This week Gov. Kate Brown and the State Land Board have an important choice. They can set in motion a process to ensure that the Elliott State Forest is protected in perpetuity as public land for the benefit of the people, fish and wildlife of Oregon, or they can sell these public lands off to a private timber company that intends to return the forest to logging levels that flagrantly violate the federal law and puts species such as spotted owls, marbled murrelets and Coho salmon at direct risk.
