Forest Defense is Climate Defense

The forests of the Drift Creek Wilderness store massive amounts of carbon.

Join us for Corvallis' Global Climate Strike & Week of Action with a presentation about the important role forests play in global climate change.

Half of Oregon is covered in forests, which absorb and store a tremendous amount of carbon from the atmosphere. This makes our state uniquely positioned to confront the problem of global climate change - if our forests are managed well. Join Oregon Wild's Western Oregon Field Coordinator Chandra LeGue for a presentation and insightful discussion about the vital importance of protecting and restoring ancient forests and public lands, and how our state can confront global climate change by modernizing logging laws.
