Upcoming Events in June!

plantillustrationhikeFinalAs you may have heard, marbled murrelet survey season is upon us. Already we’ve seen birds in some pretty controversial places, including all three of the parcels that the Department of State Lands has sold to private timber companies this year. As always, if you are interested in volunteering this summer give us a ring!

This month we are hosting two events, and we’d love to see some of you there:

On Saturday, June 21st, we’re having a plant illustration hike in the Elliott State Forest with artist and Coast Ranger Brittany. Spend the afternoon in a pristine forest while learning techniques for drawing and identifying plants. Paper, pens and graphite will be provided, but feel free to bring any preferred media. All ages and abilities welcome! Meet in front of the Bay Bridge Motel in North Bend at 11:00 am.

crfw - BlankOn Sunday, June 22nd at 4 pm, we invite you to meet, greet and eat with Coast Range Forest Watch at Studevant Park in Coquille. Come hear about our efforts to protect valuable public forest lands in Coos County and how you can get involved. Share information about the projects you are working on and how we can support you. Most importantly, get to know us and each other while enjoying free food and drink by the river! This will be a fairly informal event– families welcome. There is another
event at the Gazebo, so we’ll be meeting near the concrete structure in the middle
of the park.

    I missed the meet-n-greet. Can I get a summary of the efforts to protect our forests in Coos County? or will there be another event in the near future? Thanks!

      Hey Jen,

      No worries, there will be a public murrelet survey day in July and more in town events soon. Check back on the website in the next day or two for the details on the murrelet survey day on July 19th. Hope to see you soon!
