Please consider supporting this Kickstarter project to help protect Rough and Ready Creek from nickel mining. Rough and Ready Creek is a tributary to the Illinois River which flows into the Rogue River.

We are sooo close to our goal and only have 24 hours left so your support (even $5) will make a huge difference.

This property has been used by many years by rafters and kayakers as a take-out as the West Fork of the Hood or as a put-in for the main stem of the Hood River. ...
