Oregon’s forests will be on the agenda this Saturday, June 16, in Tillamook when Mariah Acton leads an Oregon Humanities Conversation program called “Seeing the Forest for the Trees; Stewarding Our Public Forests.”
“Because we live in a state with abundant forests, we all see something different when we look into the woods,” Acton said. “Oregon is known for both its timber industry and its deep environmental values. In this conversation, we will explore the values, identities and beliefs we each have about our forests and what we, as a state, do to steward, manage and protect this special resource.”
A graduate of the University of Oregon, Acton now works as a strategic business analyst for Oregon Housing and Community Services in Salem, facilitating agency decision-making spaces and doing stakeholder engagement.
The conversation, which is free and open to all, will start at 3 pm at Tillamook County Pioneer Museum, 2106 Second Street.
