Know & Grow: Forest Health in Western Washington - Free
May 17 - 1:30 to 3:30 PM on Zoom

Join us as Kevin Zobrist, WSU Extension Forestry, speaks about PNW Forest Health. Recent years of less summer precipitation and higher summer temperatures have caused many native trees, both conifer and deciduous, to become stressed. This makes the trees susceptible to disease, insect damage, and slow death. You may have noticed this in your own area. Zoom link.  Check out our public events calendar for more zoom info.

Know & Grow: The Art of Forest Walking - Free
June 21 - 1:30 to 3:00 PM on Zoom

Jane Billinghurst, a celebrated local author, presents "A Walk in the Forest." Her presentation will delight and inform you about the enchanting plants and animals you might see in our local forests. Check out our public events calendar as we get closer for details.
