Obsidians ExploraTalk: Exploring Oregon's Ancient Forests

A trail leads through an ancient forest on Marys Peak

Join the Obsidians at their lodge in Eugene for a talk by Chandra LeGue, author of "Oregon's Ancient Forests: A Hiking Guide."

Chandra will talk about some of the fundamentals of these forests - what makes an ancient forest, what types exist in Oregon, where they are, who manages them, why so few still survive, and what threats they continue to face. She'll also highlight a variety of the hiking experiences found in the book, covering natural history, human history, flora and fauna, so you come away with a better understanding of these complex ecosystems and their extraordinary value.  

Copies of the book will be available for sale.

Directions to the lodge can be found here.
