Third Thursday Potluck & Program: Forest Ecology & Photography

Trygve Steen is a professor of Forest Ecology, Environmental Sustainability, and Photography at Portland State University. Trygve has joined several North Coast State Forest Coalition outings, generously contributing his contagious energy and knowledge of our forest landscapes. This evening should prove to be a fascinating and beautiful introduction to forest ecology and the numerous ways that forest management impacts us.

Enjoy food and drinks, make new friends, and reconnect with old ones.  Pizza and beverages will be provided. Please bring a dish to share if you are able.

POTLUCK:  6:30 pm 
PROGRAM:  7:00 pm

HINT: If you haven't been to the Oregon Sierra Club's office, please take the time to check it out on Google Maps using the Street View.  The office is tucked away and seeing it on Street View will make it much easier to find the evening of the Event!


As a reminder, "YES" is a social commitment, not a back up to other plans. Please be considerate. No Shows & Last Minute Cancellations negatively impact the Potluck, your fellow members experiences & their future RSVP's, and your Host.  If you can not attend the MeetUp Event that you have RSVP'd "YES" to, please update your RSVP at least 24 hours prior to the start of the Event so that your Host can correctly configure the room and have enough food available & minimize waste.  Thank you for your consideration!

    A video should be made of Steen's presentation and put on the web. It could make a great impact due to its profound scope of interconnectedness and beauty.

    Dr. Steen's presentation was beautifully photographed and very thought provoking. And the potluck was perfectly delicious, too. I'm glad I attended and am looking forward to next month's agenda.
