Jack Zaccardo has thousands of early logging photos in his collection.

Join ONRC’s “Even Talks” series with Jack Zaccardo for an entertaining narrative and slide show presentation, “Logging History on the Peninsula from 1890s-1930s” from 7-8 p.m. Monday, Nov. 17, in the Hemlock Forest Room at Olympic Natural Resource Center in Forks.

Zaccardo is from a fourth-generation timber family on the Olympic Peninsula and is a retired DNR forester with an extensive and unique collection of pictures to choose from for his presentation. The presentation is a fantastic opportunity to view the techniques of past logging through some very rare photo opportunities coupled with a great narrative comparing then and now. This event is a potluck refreshment style evening.

“Evening Talks” series at ONRC is supported by the Rosmond Forestry Education Fund, an endowment that honors the contributions of Fred Rosmond and his family to forestry and the Forks community.

In addition to bringing speakers and interesting research out to ONRC, the series provides a great opportunity for University of Washington’s graduate students and others to gain experience presenting their research to the public. For more information, contact Frank Hanson at 360-640-1861.
