August Bark-About

We continuously hear the term 'restoration' applied to logging, and on this hike we'll gage the accuracy of that claim. We'll also visit some natural stands so we can compare for ourselves. We find this to be an extremely important question since there are 7,500 acres of forest from the last 6 years in the Clackamas District that are still waiting to be logged.
