“Conversations on the Forest”
May 2, 2012


Rob Handy, and friends, invite you to join us for an evening of thought provoking conversation regarding our most precious resource…the Forest.

Conversations on the Forest
May 7, 2012
6:00 – 7:30 p.m.

Rural Communities: “Small Towns, Timber, and Economic Trauma”

  • What’s the connection between timber harvest levels and rural communities in Lane County?
  • Will dramatically increasing logging in Lane County – as intended in the Walden-DeFazio proposal to privatize much of Oregon’s O&C lands – solve rural economic problems?
  • What’s the difference between increasing county timber payments and taxes, and improving rural economies?
  • How could the current public timber sale program be changed to enhance both rural economies and environments?
  • What are the effects of mill and timber sale “super sizing”, automation, mechanization, log exports and off-shoring, environmental restrictions, and stewardship opportunities on urban and rural economies? On jobs in the woods and in the mills? On small and large businesses?

Hope to see you there!

First Mondays, 6:00-7:30pm
at Cozmic, 199 W. 8th Ave. in Eugene
