The Department of Forestry is marking the implementation of High Value Conservation Areas with a series of open houses. High Value Conservation Areas include crucial salmon and steelhead habitat. These events are to celebrate and understand this classification and to explore the areas themselves. There will be self-guided tours, Google Earth maps, and ODF staff to answer questions.
These are great opportunities to pack the room and show support for Conservation Areas on State Forest lands. Make clear to the Department of Forestry that we value these areas and want them to stay!
