The stunning multimedia presentation chronicles a journey into the Oregon Coast Range's most rugged wild area. You'll see images few people will ever experience in person. From Wassen Lake downstream through the heart of the wilderness and to the confluence of the Smith River, Giraudier will take you along with him on his now legendary excursion into the heart of the Devil's Staircase Wilderness.

Oregon Wild's Old-growth Coordinator, Chandra LeGue will also detail current efforts to protect the areas stunning old-growth trees, pristine water, and wildlife habitat. After 2-decades of work, will Congress be able to push through legislation before the end of the year, or will this spectacular place have to wait even longer for the protection it deserves? LeGue will have the answers.

Your Photos

YouNews My Roses My Roses
I took this photo about 10 AM, but since it was in the shade of one of our trees, I decided to use the flash and it made it look more like I had taken it at night.
YouNews Spider from space Spider from space
While plucking dead blossoms from my Petunia plant I noticed this unusual spider so decided to take a photo of it. After loaded the shot in my computer I saw that the design on it's back looked like some sort of 'space alien'. Interesting. Enjoy.
YouNews Private Drone Used to Report Fire Private Drone Used to Report Fire
Saw smoke from a lightening strike in the hills above our place. Flew my RC plane with camera to check out the smoke. At the same time we alerted the fire department and explained we had a drone checking out the situation.
