  9. Wrecking the southern Oregon Coast

    Short but sweet: The Curry County Commissioners in southern Oregon have proposed destroying one of the most amazing stretches of Oregon Coast — a stretch between Floras Lake and Blacklock Point — by developing it into a couple of golf courses. It's a long shot, because the land they want currently belongs to the people of Oregon (via the Oregon Department of Parks and Recreation), but it's a real idea that's being given some real consideration. Read more at the links below and share your opposition with the commissioners, the parks department and anyone else you can. Too much to lose: Floras Lake and Blacklock Point Oregon Department of Parks and Recreation page on the issue Curry County Save Floras Lake
