Environmental Advocacy at Lewis Clark
There are, unfortunately, no shortage of lawsuits that need to be brought to better enforce environmental law. There's no shortage of need to represent the public interest in trying to strengthen environmental law and environmental policies. PEAC fills a great niche by providing representation to people that wouldn't otherwise be able to afford representation in environmental issues. We do a wide variety of cases involving pollution, water pollution, air pollution, protection of endangered species, and other natural resource and land management issues. So we try to get our students as involved as possible in all aspects of the cases. They.
Work on very complex litigation, from a federal court of appeals to a city task force on toxic air quality, and kind of everything in between. When I was working on the appeal in front of the Oregon Land Use Board of Appeals, I helped write the brief, and then I also got to argue in front of the Board. I had five minutes to make the argument on behalf of the interveners, and so that was an outstanding experience that not a lot of students get. And because you work closely with the PEAC attorneys, you're treated as a junior.
Attorney. It's not just like you're a law student who's just kind of doing some research and throwing it to them you're drafting things, you're writing motions, you're working on reports and editing them. And then you just have the supervision by the PEAC attorneys. So it's a great experience to kind of get the real, live experience of what litigation is like. We have been involved in litigation challenging the operation of the dams, the hydropower dams on the Columbia and Snake River, for many years, and our work with.
Earth Justice has resulted in additional measures to protect salmon at those dams. For example, spilling water over the dams that allows juvenile salmon to bypass the turbines and avoid death or injury that way. Especially in the clean water context there'ss been a lot of big cases. In the ESA context, PEAC has represented people on protecting lots of endangered species. And in the Clear Air Act context, we're working very hard to increase PEAC's representation of local neighborhood groups, doing work with urban air toxics, which is kind of an underserved.

Portland looking to revive historic Deering Oaks castle
WEEK. I THINK YOU WILL LIKE IT. TRACY THERE IS A TINY CASTLE 750 SQUARE FEET RIGHT IN THE MIDDLE OF PORTLAND'S DEERING OAKS THAT HAS SAT EMPTY FOR SEVERAL YEARS. THERE IS A PLAN TO BREATHE NEW LIFE INTO THE CASTLE. JIM KEITHLEY JOINS US NOW WITH A MAINE UPDATE. JIM DEERING OAKS IS COMING ALIVE. IT IS THIS HISTORIC BRICK TASSEL THAT HAS EVERYBODY TALKING ABOUT THE PROSPECT OF BRINGING BACK A LITTLE PANACHE. IT COST $450. JIM THE CASTLE ORIGINALLY SERVED AS A WARMING HUT FOR ICE SKATERS IN THE 1800S.
ITS FIREPLACE, STAINEDGLASS WINDOWS, AND ORIGINAL WOOD CEILING HAVE REMAINED EMPTY. MUCH OF THE HISTORY HAS REVOLVED AROUND FOOD AND DRINK. AND ADDITION WAS CONSTRUCTED IN THE 1950'S. A LOT OF HISTORICAL BUILDINGS WERE NOT AS VALUED AS THEY WERE TODAY. THE GOVERNMENT BUILT A NEW BUILDING TO PROVIDE SNACKS AND SO FORTH. JIM ANNE PRINGLE IS WITH A NONPROFIT THAT REFURBISHED THE CASTLE. MEN BE MANY REMEMBER THE BARKING SQUIRREL CAFE. NOW, THE RESTAURANT COULD BE CONVERTED INTO A KITCHEN RESTROOM COULD BE CONVERTED INTO A KITCHEN AND SERVE FOOD AGAIN.
THE CITY MANAGER SAYS WHOEVER WANTS TO CONVERT THE SPACE INTO A FOOD SERVICE THEN YOU WILL HAVE TO DEAL WITH RESTRICTIONS. IT IS SMALL AND A DARK BUILDING. WE HAVE TO BE MINDFUL OF MODIFICATIONS. JIM THERE IS PLUMBING, ELECTRICAL, AND GAS ON SITE. WHOEVER WINS THE BIDDING PROCESS WILL LIKELY STICK TO SIMPLE FAIR, SANDWICHES AND SALADS. IT IS A BEAUTIFUL LITTLE BUILDING. YOU NEED PEOPLE USED TO WORKING IN SMALL SPACES. THERE ARE PEOPLE LIKE THAT IN THE COMMUNITY WE HAVE GOT. THE ARE HOPING WE WILL GET AN.
