Spray Free Coast

The Spray Free Coast campaign represents the local efforts of several grassroots, community-based organizations on the Oregon Coast concerned about the effects of spraying on watersheds, forests, farms, wildlife and human health.

This campaign works to foster conversations about aerial herbicide spraying, allowing people to share their questions, concerns, and personal experiences in order for our communities to be fully informed and equipped to protect their quality of life and the surrounding coastal ecosystem.

Ultimately, the goal is to reform forestry practices to provide protection for watersheds and communities near industrial forestry operations, and sustainability in forest management for long-term benefits to the ecosystem and economy. This campaign specifically focuses on the industrial forestry practice of aerial herbicide application by helicopter because of the increased risk of drift or chemical trespass.
