Details

Learn about healthy ecosystem created through sustainable forest management and how this strategy can be used to sequester carbon and sustain healthy air and water in the face of climate change. David Eisler, owner of Shady Creek Forest, will lead the guided tour through stands of resilient woods. Oregon forests are at serious risk from increases in disease, drought and wildfires due to climate change. Hear David’s perspective on forest resiliency based on his experience managing for long term health along with financial yield. The tour will highlight both an industrial mono-crop and a bio-diverse forest stand to compare appearance and ecosystem balance. There will be moderate and easy walk options offered to accommodate the most participants. Please come prepared with your own snacks as needed, water and good walking shoes. For personal vehicles carpooling, please meet in the Lane County Historical Museum (740 W 13th Ave, Eugene, OR 97402) parking lot for a 4:10 p.m. departure. Beyond Toxics will offer a $10 stipend for cars with three or more people and additional support from passengers can be offered to drivers at seen fit.
