Oregon Forest Practices Act

"Is the Forest Practices Act Working?"

What level of environmental safeguards is provided by the Oregon Forest Practices Act, that sets the rules for Oregon's vast private timberlands? How does it compare to the Washington and California counterparts?

October's Conversation will contrast Oregon's archaic Forest Practices Act, relatively unchanged since created in 1971, with more progressive forest practice rules adopted in other Pacific states.

We will review real-world outcomes under the current act, and explore possible reforms that could provide more protection for the people of Oregon and their forest resources. Can the Forest Practices Act protect the public along with their water and wildlife, entwined within the private forests, and still provide for viable timber production?

We'll also announce our October forest field trip.

First Mondays, 6:00-7:30pm
at Cozmic, 199 W. 8th Ave. in Eugene, Oregon
