April Program Meeting: Douglas-fir National Monument with Stephen Sharnoff
Stephen Sharnoff, nature photographer and research associate at UC Berkeley, is our featured guest at the April Program Meeting. He will give a presentation about a major new public-lands conservation initiative that he and Oregon conservationist Andy Kerr are leading. They have drafted a proposal for a national monument to the Douglas-fir forests of the Pacific Northwest, to be located in the Santiam River watershed of the western Cascades.
Stephen’s work has been published in two guidebooks on lichens and in National Geographic and Smithsonian, among many others.
