Forests provide tremendous benefits for people and nature. From critical habitat for wildlife, to clean air and water, to livelihoods, they help us achieve a healthy balance in meeting our environmental, social, and economic needs. But they're also being threatened by climate change and human activity. Forests – and the communities like Port Townsend that depend on them – need our most creative thinking and best efforts to ensure a healthy planet for future generations.
You're invited to join a forum of forest experts, state policymakers, and community thought leaders to learn about new climate-smart forestry projects in the region. Bring your observations and questions as we collectively address how to best conserve one of the Northwest's greatest natural resources – our working forests.
