Welcome to Forest Web…
Forests precede civilizations and deserts follow them... This simple quotation lives at the heart of Forest Web. If we want to change this sad truth, we need to change the concepts of how we relate to the natural world on which all of us depend.
Root systems may occupy an area four to seven times the surface area
occupied by the crown of the tree. Not only do these roots provide
nutrients to the tree and prevent soil erosion, they also play host to a
variety of fungi, or Mycorrhizae, forming a symbiotic relationship.
These fungi receive sustenance from the tree and, in turn, increase
the efficiency of the tree’s root system, creating a web throughout a
Forest Web of Cottage Grove applies this lesson from Nature to our
organization, working with a variety of environmental groups,
co-hosting events and hikes, collaborating on lobbying efforts and
comment campaigns, and sharing information and support to nurture
all our common goals.
And, to continue building this network, we operate an ever-growing email list, a Facebook page, Youtube Channel, and this website to activate, educate and inform. To receive updates, action alerts, and event notices, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
After heartfelt deliberation, Forest Web and our co-sponsors of the Climate Action Town Hall have decided it is in the public interest to cancel the event this Saturday.
Based on the rapidly changing situation with COVID-19 this is the best course of action to protect our community from what we don't know--how many people are being or have been exposed at this point. New cases are popping up very quickly, and as a coalition, we feel it is best to take this preventative measure.
Until such time as it is deemed safe, we will postpone an in-person town hall, but we will be looking into the possibility of hosting a live-stream presentation by our speakers on Saturday. We know this is not what we envisioned for the next step in our campaign for a carbon neutral Cottage Grove, but we feel it is important to find some way to make the information available. A notification will be sent out as soon as the details are settled.
We plan to reschedule this event as soon as the current health crisis has passed, and hope you will all be willing to join us at that time.
It is with great reluctance and sadness that we have made this decision.
