Rally to Protect
Post-Fire Forests & Waters
When: Thursday, May 6, 2021 at 4:00om
Where: Oregon State Capitol—Wilson Park (westside gazebo), 900 Court St. Salem, OR 97301
As communities across Oregon continue to rebuild after the 2020 fire season, timber corporations and ill-equipped agencies are clear-cut logging large swaths of fire-burned public lands. Places like the Santiam Canyon, McKenzie and North Umpqua rivers have recently been transformed by rampant post-fire logging. In a changing climate, these activities will worsen drought, make wildfire hazard more severe, and fuel climate change. And this is only the beginning of the logging planned.

Join Forest Web on May 23rd
for our next
Forest Immersion session
Forest Web wants to facilitate ways for people to relate to Nature on a personal level. Based on the Japanese practice of Shinrin Yoku, forest immersion allows participants to experience a mindful reconnection to the natural world.
Small groups will be led through a series of invitations to gain an unhurried, conscious presence in the woods. Your guide will facilitate opportunities to experience Nature in playful, inquisitive, and open-hearted exercises, connecting you and the forest in a profound yet simple way.
Forest Web will be holding a series of these 3-hour sessions for groups of between 5 to 7 individuals. These sessions will be led by Mary Grace Brogdon, LCSW. Due COVID-19, we will be practicing social distancing and masks are required.
Our next Forest Immersion will be held on Sunday, May 23rd from 11:00am until 2:00pm near Cottage Grove.
