We live in a state with abundant forests, and yet we don’t all see the same thing when we look into the woods. Oregon is known for both its timber industry and its deep environmental values. What are the beliefs we have about our forests and what will we, as a state, do to steward, manage, and protect this special resource?

This is the focus of “Seeing the Forest for the Trees: Stewarding Our Public Lands,” a free conversation with Mariah Action on Thursday, June 14, at 4 p.m. at the Cannon Beach History Center and Museum, 1387 South Spruce St. The program is hosted by Cannon Beach History Center and Museum and sponsored by Oregon Humanities.

Acton is a soon-to-be graduate from the University of Oregon, where her master’s work focuses at the intersection of conflict resolution, nonprofit management, and public administration. As a recent social science researcher for the US Forest Service and a volunteer facilitator with forest collaboratives in the southern Willamette Valley, she recognizes that this is an exciting time for public-driven, sustainable forest management, and she appreciates that there are more conversations to be had.
