Oregon’s ancient forests are vital to our state’s future – for clean water, climate change, wildlife, recreation, environmental justice, and so much more. Learn about what makes these forests so special, where to find them, why so few remain, and what threats they continue to face. Chandra will highlight a variety of the hiking experiences found in the book, covering natural and human history, so you come away with a better understanding of these complex ecosystems and their extraordinary value.
Born and raised in Michigan, Chandra LeGue has called Oregon home since 1999.
