An Oregon Humanities Conversation Project: ”Seeing the Forest and the Trees: Stewarding our Public Forests"
Friday, August 24, 6:30 p.m., SFI
Conversation facilitated by Mariah Acton
We don’t all see the same thing when we look into the woods. Oregon is known for both its timber industry and its deep environmental values. Management of our public forests has made headlines and driven apart neighbors. In this conversation, we'll explore the values, identities, and beliefs we each have about our forests and what we, as a state, do to steward, manage, and protect this special resource.
