Videos about BMBP’s work:
This Is BMBP is a video by Trip Jennings. Special thanks to Trip and to B Media for filming the video and to Balance Media for production and directing.
The heart of our ecological protection work is our field survey program, and volunteers are the backbone of this work. With the help of volunteers, we survey thousands of acres of proposed timber sales each year. Watch this summary of our work, including words from our volunteers. Special thanks to BMBP volunteers Isabel, Sara, and Grace for their work on this video!
You can also watch the Earth Day interview (below) in which Karen Coulter talks about our work in eastern Oregon, including our accomplishments on reducing toxic herbicide use on public lands, fighting logging projects, and bringing awareness to these issues. The interview also discusses externalized costs of environmental degradation, legal rights for nature and animals, and more. Thanks to Jim Lockhart for producing this video.
The video below highlights Karen Coulter discussing climate change and forests. We are working to bring awareness to how climate change is already threatening the ecological integrity and biodiversity of forests in eastern Oregon. We are also challenging practices on public lands that exacerbate problems related to climate change, such as ecologically destructive logging practices that alter watershed hydrology, de-water streams. raise stream temperatures, and threaten species vulnerable to climate change.
Karen Coulter, Director of Blue Mountains Biodiversity Project, discusses post-logging impacts in the EXF timber sale in the Deschutes National Forest in the mini-film below. Special thanks to Kenneth Watson for making this video!
You can listen to Karen Coulter discuss our work, forest and fire ecology, and current threats to forests in eastern Oregon in an interview on the Wild Clearwater Country Radio Show (click here). This excellent interview was recorded earlier this 2016 field season– thanks to the folks at Friends of the Clearwater in Idaho!
