The Northwest Community Forest Forum: May 9-11

The Northwest Community Forest Forum is taking place in Astoria from May 9-11. The full agenda can be found here. It is three days of events: an opening keynote by Katie Voelke of the North Coast Land Conservancy on the evening of Wednesday 9th, kicking off the Forum with a look at the landscape of the region and the history of Oregon community forests; Thursday features presentations, stories, breakout sessions and workshops by a host of panelists, including Dr. Bob McKane of the EPA as the keynote, members of the Nisqually tribe, representatives from communities and non-profits with an interest or stake in community forests, forestry consultants, experts on financing opportunities and those with direct experience of municipally-owned forests; on Friday, we go into the field - we'll visit the Arch Cape drinking watershed and get a valuable, on-site insight into the processes that have been explored in theory over the preceding two days.
