On September 15, 17 iconic Portland buildings turned off their unnecessary lights, taking part in the 2017 launch of the Audubon Society of Portland’s Lights Out campaign, an effort designed to encourage Portlanders to save energy, save birds and see stars. Households and businesses pledged to turn off their non-essential lights from dusk until dawn, and then to go outside to gaze at the night sky.

In late June, just before the Fourth of July, a male Bald Eagle was rescued by an Oregon State Trooper after reports that the bird was injured. The eagle was brought to Audubon Society of Portland’s Wildlife Care Center where it was determined that the bird had been illegally shot. Unfortunately, despite expert care and time to heal, the Bald Eagle was euthanized in mid-August due to the severity of the injury and its impact on the shoulder. This difficult decision was made after assessing quality of life.

Today, the Oregon Land Use Board of Appeals (LUBA) ruled that Portland’s Fossil Fuel Terminal Zoning Amendments, passed unanimously in December of 2016, is inconsistent with the Commerce Clause of the U.S. Constitution. Portland’s fossil fuel policy intended to prevent new major fossil fuel infrastructure projects in the City. LUBA dismissed many of the other arguments brought by the oil industry and the Portland Business Alliance against the City’s policy. LUBA’s ruling is likely to be appealed to the State Court of Appeals.
