Wildfire: Book Talk with Heather Hansen (Hood River)

Join Waucoma Bookstore, Mountaineers Books, Oregon Wild and CCA in welcoming author Heather Hansen to share the story of her book, Wildfire, which brings equal measures of sciences and drama to the issue of combating ever larger, more intense wildland fires. Hanson spent eighteen months immersed in fire science and policy, shadowing the elite firefighters of Station 8 near Boulder, Colorado, through their daily training regimens, public interaction, and an all-out week-long battle against a mountain blaze that tested their intensively honed skills and endurance.


Wildfire in the West: Book Talk with Heather Hansen (PDX)

Join journalist Heather Hansen at Portland's REI in a discussion of why wildfires are getting bigger, costlier and more intense. In her new book, WILDFIRE, Hansen spends nearly two years shadowing an elite wildland fire crew, immersed in firefighting, public relations, science, and policy. Her lively reportage and presentation combines interviews, mountain hikes, visits to fire labs, and even her attempts to keep up with firefighters (who are considered among the fittest people in the world) during their rigorous workouts.

Public Lands Summit (Bend)

As central Oregonians, we are fortunate to interact with public lands and wild places regularly. Our access to the great outdoors is the reason many of us choose to reside here, but these wild places do not exist without the help of the citizens like you who are willing to speak up for them.

Aerial Spray Panel - Eugene

Join the Willamette Valley Broadband of Great Old Broads  (with some help from Oregon Wild!) - for their first Eugene Area Broadtalk!

Aerial spraying of herbicides affects healthy forest understory growth, animal life, human communities nearby and creates groundwater and waterway contamination through run-off. Spray drifts via wind currents so it affects other areas than just the trees it is targeted on. Cancer and endocrine disruption are two effects on humans and wildlife. Doors open at 2:30, panel starts at 3pm.
