An educational forum about how our forests can help fight climate change

As the climate continues to change at a rapid pace, Oregonians are talking more about ways to reduce the carbon emissions from our energy and transportation sectors; however, notably absent from these conversations is one of Oregon’s largest sources of carbon emissions: logging.

Join us on December 4 for an insightful discussion about the relationship between the climate and our forests.

At our forum, we’ll be hearing from experts about how the clearcutting industry is a major source of carbon emissions and how forests, when protected from industrial logging, can mitigate climate change by capturing and storing vast amounts carbon. We’ll also highlight a few ways you can take action to help defend our forests, and we’ll close with a Q&A with the panelists.

This free event is organized by Oregon Wild, Community for Earth of First Unitarian Portland, Climate Action Coalition, and 350PDX, with support from numerous other nonprofits in the Portland area.

Join us for a happy hour at 5:45pm with free beer, wine and snacks donated by local businesses. Several nonprofits will be tabling and offering information about their work, so come early to grab a seat and connect with us! Be sure to enter on SW Salmon.

This event is part of a series of educational forums around the state about how our forests can help fight climate change. The “Forest Defense is Climate Defense” tour has already been to Corvallis and Eugene, and will soon visit Oregon City, Newport, and other communities around Oregon.
