Agenda for download

Please join us for a tour of assisted migration and climate adapted restoration projects near Carnation, Washington. We will be meeting at the Oxbow Farm and Conservation Center to tour their assisted migration project along the banks of the Snoqualmie River, and then carpooling to the Stossel Creek Adaptive Reforestation Project site. During the tour, we will discuss the details of both adaptive reforestation projects and have an open discussion on the ethics of assisted migration.

Speakers during the field tour will include staff from the Oxbow Farm and Conservation Center, the Mountains to Sound Greenway Trust, Seattle City Light and Seattle Public Utilities, and Northwest Natural Resource Group.

Conditions: Field tours may include longer walks on uneven or steep terrain. Sturdy shoes and weather appropriate clothing are recommended.
