Run, Rogue, Run
This short film was shot on an ECHO Rogue trip last September by the Epicocity Project to spread the word about the Save the Wild Rogue campaign. The purpose of this campaign is to help protect the roadless areas in the Rogue River watershed from logging, mining, and road building which affect water quality and spawning areas for Steelhead and Salmon. Although the Rogue River is protected by the Wild and Scenic Rivers Act, it's upper watershed is not. This area needs lasting designation as a wilderness area, which can only be accomplished with an act of Congress.
To help, visit the "Take Action" page on the Save the Wild Rogue web site to learn how to contact your Congressional representatives. You can also support American Rivers and the Klamath-Siskiyou Wildlands Center who are both working hard to pass this legislation.
