A Conversation Around the Future of Forest-Based Community Prosperity

Join us on Thursday, June 13, 2024, at 7 pm at the Olympic Natural Resources Center (ONRC) Hemlock Forest Room, 1455 S. Forks Ave, Forks, WA

The ONRC will host a community discussion facilitated by: Garrett Dalan and Dr. Tanushree Biswas from The Nature Conservancy and Jacob Perritt-Cravey from Tree Ring Consulting.

Forestry, and the communities surrounded by the forests, have seen lifetimes of changes and developments. With a significant increase in the market prices for carbon credits over the past 5 years, carbon centered forestry has gained interest and implementation. While change is often viewed as risk and uncertainty, it also creates opportunity.

Staff from the Emerald Edge Program of The Nature Conservancy will be hosting a community conversation to seek opportunities that align with local needs and priorities. Following a brief presentation on carbon forestry and assumptions, the format will be one of conversation among all in attendance. This is the first of several intended conversations and workshops.

This community conversation is supported by the Rosmond Family Education Fund.
