Cape Perpetua: Exploring Ancient Forests

Saturday, February 1, 2020

Exploring Oregon’s Ancient Forests. Chandra LeGue, Western Oregon Field Coordinator, Oregon Wild. Dripping coastal forests of giant Douglas-firs, high desert groves of massive ponderosa pines, and lush mixed conifer forests surrounding jagged Cascade peaks--Oregon’s ancient forests are vital to our state's future for clean water, climate change, wildlife, recreation, and so much more. Chandra cover a variety of topics including: what makes an ancient forest, what types exist in Oregon, where they are, who manages them, why so few still survive, and what threats they continue to face.
