The Forest Service in Transition: An evening with former Deputy Chief of the US Forest Service, Jim Furnish (Portland)

The Siuslaw National Forest on the Oregon coast once saw some of the bitterest battles over old-growth logging in the Pacific Northwest.  But a shift towards ecological restoration, guided by the 1994 Northwest Forest Plan and innovative leadership has made the Siuslaw a model for conflict-free management. Jim Furnish, former Forest Supervisor on the Siuslaw, was an integral part of this leadership and transition.

Book Talk: Elizabeth Kolbert's "The Sixth Extinction"

Elizabeth Kolbert, Heinz Award-winning staff writer for the New Yorker and author of Field Notes from a Catastrophe: Man, Nature, and Climate Change (2006), comes to OSU to discuss her new book, The Sixth Extinction.

By burning fossil fuels, Homo sapiens are “reassembling the biosphere,” rapidly changing the atmosphere, the oceans, and the climate, forcing potentially millions of species into extinction. Kolbert’s compelling and enlightening report forthrightly addresses the most significant topic of our lives.

The Future of Wilderness Forum

Oregon has long been regarded as a state full with natural treasures of forests, rivers and mountains. We rely on Wilderness to provide clean drinking water, wildlife habitat, recreation and solitude. Wilderness is what defines us as a state, and what provides us with a high quality of living. And while our public lands belong to everyone, it takes an act of Congress to protect them from logging, mining and human development. Fortunately, the power to designate areas as Wilderness is in our hands.
