McKenzie Watershed Field Trip

May 14, 2005

In this outing emanating from the H. J. Andrews Forest Research Center we used our brains more than our feet. As guests of the U.S. Forest Service, we learned a great deal about present day forest management practices from an experienced forester and a field biologist. It was very informative and somehow comforting to know that there appears to much thought, science and energy directed towards mitigating the effects of logging in our National forests, at least locally. Visiting various previously logged sites, we were able to view first hand, the positive (?) results of alternative strategies to clear cuts. Let’s hope the wildlife agree as well.

Privileged students on this non-hike were: Max Brown, Kitson Graham and leader Peter Graham.
