Wild Webcasts

Engaging with Nature and the Wild
Wednesday, May 20th @ 6PM

As we navigate stay-at-home orders, public health rules, and curtailed outdoor recreation opportunities, there’s a lot we can do to connect with nature and prepare for wilderness experiences - from building outdoor skills to learning more about earth science and plants. Join geologist and writer Ruby McConnell for tips, tools, and practices for engaging with nature for all ages, as well as Oregon Wild’s Chandra LeGue with updates and best practices for getting outdoors in the COVID-19 world.


Science Review: Northwest Forests and Carbon
Thursday, May 21st @ 4PM

Although new studies reveal a previously unexpected, tremendous capacity of  west coast forests to absorb CO2,  this new scientific understanding has not yet been transformed into public policy. Panelists will present a synopsis of this research and analyses and discuss proposed policy changes that would elevate carbon-oriented forest management as a climate solution.


The Return of the Condor
May 27th @ 6PM

The potential return of North America’s largest bird to the Pacific Northwest is something to celebrate! Bringing back the California condor isn’t just an opportunity for restoration and rewilding, but also reconnection and cultural rebirth. We hope you can join us as we welcome special guest Tiana Williams-Claussen with the Yurok Tribe as she presents on the wide-ranging importance of prey-go-neesh (condor) and what you can do to help advocate for this majestic bird.


The Lost Sea Otters of Oregon
June 3rd @ 6PM

What’s cute, fuzzy, an expert 'rafter' and that Oregon Wild is working hard to bring back to the state? 
Sea otters! Tune in to find out more about this important species and what you can do to help advocate for its return.


Hiking Mount Hood
June 10th @ 6PM

Mount Hood is home to some of Oregon's most jaw droppingly beautiful trails, old-growth forests, wildflowers, and streams. Join us for a virtual tour based on Eli's new book "Day Hiking Mount Hood" and learn about efforts to protect Mount Hood and it's trails. 

Documentary Screening: Public Lands & Me
June 17th @ 6PM

Who are public lands for? The correct answer is: everyone - and protecting them is a lot easier with friends. Join Oregon Wild and our partner Soul River for a screening of our short documentary "Public Lands & Me!" followed by a panel discussion on diversity, advocacy, and access.

Knowing Oregon's Bees
June 24th @ 6 PM

Bee expert August Jackson will present a vividly illustrated exploration of the diversity of Oregon's bee species, their varied life histories, and examples of their relationships with our native flora. Getting to know our native bees is the first step to seeing them everywhere you go, and to appreciating the vital role they play in our ecosystem!
