World-renowned for the natural beauty and plentiful resources our forests provide, Oregon is also increasingly becoming a victim of a devasting annual wildfire season that not only scorches our land but significant local industries and our region’s economy as well.
Next Monday, November 13, our Forum Speaker Series welcomes a panel of experts to discuss the challenges and opportunities facing Oregon forests, the economic impacts of wildfires and other external forces, and how we, as a community, can chart a healthier path forward with forest management solutions.
WHAT: Forum Speaker Series: “A Path to Healthy Forests in Oregon”
WHEN: Monday, November 13, 2023, 11:30am to 1:00pm
WHERE: Salem Convention Center
SPEAKERS: Representative Ed Diehl (Oregon House District 17); Julie Woodward, Director of Forestry, Oregon Forest Resources Institute; Dr. John D. Bailey, Professor of Silviculture and Fire Management, College of Forestry, Oregon State University
While our rural communities have felt the unmerciful brunt of wildfires and harmful forestry policies, the health of Oregon’s forests truly impacts us all. Join us for this important conversation.
Thank you to our November Forum Sponsor, Express Employment Professionals, and our 2023-2024 Forum Speaker Series Presenting Sponsor, Hagan Hamilton Insurance Solutions, for making this luncheon possible.
