Snowy Mt. Hood

Cooper Spur Wild & Free Coalition is a diverse affiliation of recreation, environmental, and citizen organizations working to keep the north side of Mt. Hood wild since 2002.

Our mission is to preserve and protect the biological integrity and historic nature of the north side of Mt. Hood in and around Cooper Spur from new development, increased commercial activities, high impact recreational expansion, and timber sales on public and private lands in and adjacent to those lands.

Let's safeguard our watershed.

Cooper Spur’s waterways provide spawning grounds for fall- and spring-run Chinook salmon, a federally listed Threatened species; summer- and winter-run steelhead trout, federally listed as Threatened; Coho salmon, listed as Endangered in Oregon; and both resident and sea-running cutthroat trout, listed as Sensitive species in Oregon.

Ski development would hurt deer and elk by increasing human encounters, compacting vegetation and delaying spring green-up.

“You’d lose habitat in an area four to ten times the size of whatever they put in…a large resort at that site would change migration patterns” – Jim Torland, District Wildlife Biologist, Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife, The Dalles.

The cumulative impacts of thinning/clearcutting forest through the Pollallie-Cooper timber sale and a potential human development would significantly affect the area that is already changing due to climate caused impacts such as decreased snow pack and increased wildfires.

The Cooper Spur Shelter provides great views of Mt. Hood, the area to the east and shelter from the elements.
