Author talk: Oregon's Ancient Forests

Forest on Marys Peak

Author Chandra LeGue, Oregon Wild’s Western Oregon Field Coordinator, wants you to know and love Oregon’s incredible ancient forests and guides you to them with 91 awe-inspiring hikes in her new book "Oregon's Ancient Forests: A hiking guide."

This comprehensive guide, published by Mountaineers Books, explains what makes ancient forests so unique as well as what types exist in Oregon, where they are, who manages them, why so few still survive, and what threats they continue to face. Covering natural history, human history, flora, and fauna, Oregon’s Ancient Forests offers a depth of information that will help you understand these complex ecosystems and their extraordinary value.

Chandra will talk about her book and share beautiful photos at the 7:00pm presentation, to be followed by Q&A and book signing.
