Join us for our February Oregon Humanities’ “Conversation at the Rockford Grange” at 4262 Barrett Drive, Hood River. These monthly conversations aim to connect people to ideas and to each other, invite diverse perspectives, and nurture respectful civic engagement and curiosity.
Our second conversation, “Seeing the Forest and the Trees: Stewarding Our Public Forests,” will be facilitated by Oregon Humanities’ Mariah Acton, a strategic business analyst at Oregon Housing and Community Services in Salem and former US Forest Service social science researcher and volunteer facilitator with forest collaboratives in the southern Willamette Valley. Acton will engage participants with questions about our forests and sustainable forest management. We live among abundant forests, and yet we don’t all see the same thing when we look into the woods. What will we, as a state and region do to steward, manage, and protect our public forests? Doors open and hot soup will be served from 5:30 to 6:30 p.m. Conversation begins promptly at 6:30 p.m.
Location: 4262 Barrett Drive, Hood River, OR
$5.00 suggested donation for conversation; no one turned away for lack of funds
