Event description

Description

From cutting trees to mowing brush, to conducting controlled burns, there is a lot of work going on in the forests around Central Oregon. Have you wondered why?

The Deschutes Collaborative Forest Project and our U.S. Forest Service partners invite you to spend an afternoon in the forest, learning and discussing the important forest restoration work going on around us and how it is helping make our communities and firefighters safer in the face of wildfires and our forests healthier for us and for the plants and animals that live there.

Itinerary: Thursday September 28, 2017

  • 1:00 pm meet at GoodLife Brewing to board the bus
  • 1:15 pm – 5:00pm Field Tour
  • 5:00 – 6:00 Goodlife Brewery Social (no-host bar, appetizers provided)

Our forests define the quality of life we all enjoy in Central Oregon. Forests provide an economic engine through recreation, tourism, and wood products. Forests are our source of clean and abundant water. Forests are the backdrop of our lives.

As leaders and decision-makers, you inform the dialogue in Central Oregon that shapes community understanding, awareness, and support for our forest restoration efforts.

Through this field trip and post-tour happy hour at Goodlife Brewing (featuring our very own Wildland Session Ale!), we hope to foster discussion, Q&A, and reflection on the importance of our forests and the pioneering collaborative forest restoration work happening here in Central Oregon

This field tour is also your opportunity to meet some of the many individuals and community groups, scientists, land managers, fire professionals, and natural resource experts who are working together to ensure we have a healthy and resilient forest to sustain our Central Oregon way of life now and for generations to come.

Please dress for walking outside on uneven terrain. Sturdy shoes and proper layers/sun protection are recommended.

Space is limited, please RSVP as soon as possible.
