Community Hike: Learn about Ecological Forestry

Join us on a guided hike and discussion on climate-friendly forest management! Have you ever wondered if there are alternatives to clearcut logging? Can our forests produce wood products while still fostering biodiversity, forest health, and climate resilience? Join local forest policy expert Alexander Harris (RE Sources) on a hike through managed timberlands to learn about the promises and challenges of "ecological forest management" — a new approach that balances the economic, ecological, and cultural benefits that our forests can provide. 

RSVP required. Capped at 30 participants. Please fill out this form once per participant. 

This community hike hosted by RE Sources and Center for Responsible Forestry is focused on the impact of forestry and clearcutting in Lake Whatcom watershed, showcased by the recent Oyster timber sale on state land managed by the Dept. of Natural Resources (DNR).

        We acknowledge that Whatcom County is located on the unceded territory of the Coast Salish Peoples. They cared for the lands that included what we’d call the Puget Sound region, Vancouver Island and British Columbia since time immemorial. This gives us the great obligation and opportunity to learn how to care for our surrounding areas and all the natural and human resources we require to live. We express our deepest respect and gratitude for our indigenous neighbors, the Lummi Nation and Nooksack Tribe, for their enduring care and protection of our shared lands and waterways.
