Grassroots environmental advocacy group Oregon Wild will be holding a weekly webcast series on Wednesday evenings for the next several weeks.
Formerly dubbed the Oregon Natural Resources Council, the group has been active in the state since 1974 with a mission “to protect and restore Oregon’s wildlands, wildlife, and waters as an enduring legacy for future generations.”
Featuring a range of guests, the webcast series will explore a variety of wild topics including: building outdoor skills; carbon-oriented forest management; the diversity of Oregon’s bee species; best practices for outdoor recreation in the COVID-19 world; and advocacy for the state’s public lands and vulnerable/endangered species such as wolves, condors, sea otters, and grizzly bears.
