Former Oregon Governor supports expanding Rogue River protections

There was a great article by former Oregon governor John Kitzhaber in the Oregonian last week, calling for more protection on the Rogue River.

While the lower Rogue has a narrow strip of protection along the river’s edge, it is critical that we take a watershed approach and protect the important tributary streams and uplands of the Rogue. For that reason many conservationists, boaters, anglers and businesses have joined forces to strengthen protections for the lower Rogue.

Kitzhaber called on Peter Defazio, Ron Wyden and Gordon Smith to expand protections for the fishery. We have also called on representatives to do so — see our recent Rogue River op-ed in the Register Guard . For more info, check out SaveTheWildRogue.org.
