We promote a culture of environmental stewardship, building awareness of important current issues. Our history of community activism began in the early days, with successful efforts to halt inappropriate ski area development on the mountain in areas sacred to Native tribes.
As a community organization, citizens and elected officials often approach us for assistance with environmental issues and concerns, such as the City of Weed’s ongoing negotiations with Roseburg Lumber for rights to its water supply. Recently we advised the City of Mt. Shasta on issues with LED streetlights and wireless water meters, based on citizens’ concerns.
In addition, we lend our support to coalitions taking the lead on other environmental issues in our area such as opposing the Shasta Dam raising, and implementing the removal of dams on the Klamath River. We will also work to preserve cultural values of local indigenous tribes and others; and consult, understand and include these diverse stakeholders as we set our plans and priorities.
