Climate Change and Forest Policy Workshop

Thursday, January 12, 2017, 06:30pm - 08:00pm
Contact  info@bark-out.org, 503-331-0374

This event is a follow-up workshop to dig deeper into the history and policy we covered in Radicle Training: Intro to Forest Policy, in November.

In this workshop we will look at some of the management policies that could impact the forest's response to the impacts of climate change.

We'll look at the proposed Polallie Cooper Timber Sale to explore the project’s impacts to climate change, water, and recreation. Using this information, we will discuss how current policies and regulations result in such projects, consider regulatory changes that would lead to better projects and learn the process through which we, the public, can change the rules to protect the forest.

Mt. Hood National Forest is one of our greatest assets in fighting global climate change through local action, but the standards under which the Forest Service operates were written in 1990 and don’t take climate change into account. The glaring absence of scientific assessment about the combined impacts of the commercial timber program and the changing climate poses serious threats to water quality and recreation, two of the most important aspects of quality of life around the mountain. Come out for this workshop to learn how we can ensure a better future for Mt. Hood.

This workshop is open to everyone, whether or not you've come to the Intro to FP training. We will be working together to pick apart a timber sale from top to bottom and understand the legal processes that go into its planning, review, implementation, and in some cases litigation. This workshop is intended to help you become an advocate for stronger protections for our public lands, teach you some important concepts in comment writing and engaging in the planning process with the Forest Service, and give us all a chance to hash this stuff out together!
