Oregon Wild Ones (EUG): Forests and Climate Change

The Carbon Connection: Understanding the Relationship Between Our Forests and Our Climate 
 
Join Oregon Wild on September 25 for our monthly Oregon Wild Ones gathering to learn more about the fascinating relationship between our forests and our climate. Our current logging practices dump more carbon into the atmosphere than any other sector, but if we do a better job protecting our public forests we would not only lower these emissions, but also bolster these forests’ capacity to capture and store carbon.

Hanson spent eighteen months immersed in fire science and policy, shadowing the elite firefighters of Station 8 near Boulder, Colorado, through their daily training regimens, public interaction, and an all-out week-long battle against a mountain blaze that tested their intensively honed skills and endurance.

Wildfire in the West: Book Talk with Heather Hansen (PDX)

In her new book, WILDFIRE, Hansen spends nearly two years shadowing an elite wildland fire crew, immersed in firefighting, public relations, science, and policy.
