By | Video Recordings | No Comments

Join us for an inspiring virtual immersion into the wild world of our remarkable forests. In this webinar recording you’ll learn about:

  • The unique and surprising traits and needs of important native tree species—including the roles they play in the forests’ ecology;
  • The distinctive characteristics of the wood that comes from these trees and the roles each play in our daily lives;
  • The impact your tree and wood-related choices have—and can have—on forests, near and far; and
  • Ways that you can strengthen your connections to local forests and have a positive impact on them

Speakers Michael Ahr (West Multnomah Soil and Water Conservation District) and Peter Hayes (Hyla Woods and Build Local Alliance) will be your virtual forest guides.
