Understanding Forest Connectivity: Streams and Climate Change
Paula has spent over a decade working on behalf of forests and wildlands in Oregon working to defend forests on public lands through activist organization, public outreacPaula bioh, leading hikes, and field checking.
Right now of the biggest questions for forest defnders is: How can we best protect the ecological integrity of forests in the face of climate change?
Paula will lead a group discussion about current threats to the ecological integrity of forests from climate change and logging. The focus will be on streams and forest connectivity, and will provide some basic concepts on stream ecology and water quality. The discussion will include issues relevant to the east and west sides of the Cascades. A short hike and stream macroinvertebrate sampling may be involved depending on stream accessibility and group size.
