“Exploring Oregon’s Ancient Forests” will be the topic of our September Science Pub. Chandra LeGue, author and Western Oregon Field Coordinator for Oregon Wild, will describe her recently published book “Oregon’s Ancient Forests: A Hiking Guide.” This talk will illustrate the fundamentals of our ancient forests, highlight a variety of hiking experiences and feature trails in and around the Coast Fork Willamette Watershed.
The CFWWC hosts a family-friendly monthly public meeting series called the Coast Fork Science Pub on the fourth Tuesday of each month from 5-7pm at the Axe & Fiddle, 657 E. Main Street in Cottage Grove. The event begins with informal socializing, trivia, and updates about the watershed and watershed council during the first hour. The Science Pub presentation begins at 6pm. CFWWC receives 10% of all sales from the evening between 5-7:30pm. The event is free to the public, with a $5 donation suggested.
