Lincoln City - Forestry and Herbicide Monitoring through FERNS online
Join Oregon Wild's Jason Gonzales as he explains the Oregon Department of Forestry's FERNS site.
FERNS is the online system provided by the Oregon Department of Forestry in which you can monitor and comment on upcoming logging operations, as well as the herbicide applications that follow. We will discuss how to sign up for the free service, how to search for activity in your area, and how to subcribe to monitor a specific region you care about.
We will also talk about how to use FERNS to monitor threats to your communitie's drinking water, and make sure your friends, family, and neighbors are aware of the impacts local industrial logging can have on them.
