Free Wild Wednesday event at Lucky Labrador

An Oregon Wild Wednesday Presentation: Ascending the Giants A Journey to the Tops of the Tallest Trees with Oregon’s Tree Climbing Experts Oct. 22nd, 6pm-7pm

Brian French and Will Koomjian have seen their fair share of big old trees. Over the last few years, the two Oregon-based arborists have climbed and measured champion trees across the Northwest and around the world. On October 22nd at the Hawthorne Lucky Lab in Portland, they will share their video, photos, and stories from the forest canopy.

While Ascending the Giants will provide a unique perspective of the largest trees in the West, Oregon Wild Conservation and Restoration Coordinator, Doug Heiken, will present on the role our oldest forests play in combating the threat of climate change. Heiken recently co-authored the report, Climate Control: How Northwest Old-Growth Forests Can Help Fight Global Warming, and has been a vocal advocate for including forest protections in proposed policy solutions dealing with climate change.
