Eco-forestry Hike

January 29th : 11-2

Celebrate the New Year with an exciting and informative day in the woods.  Join Josh Weber and Taylor Starr for a tour of the ongoing eco-forestry work at White Oak, then continue onward and upward for a loop hike through threatened old growth on Public Lands in the Marble Gulch watershed.  While we adventure, we will discuss thinning methods, diverse forest types, federal land management, and opportunities to challenge the BLM’s attempts to log exceptional old growth forests in Williams. Come prepared for any weather as well as some steep and off-trail travel. Please RSVP for meet-up location as space is limited:

New Years Eco-forestry Hike Sunday Jan 2 – 11am – 2pm   

Nestled into a northern fold of the Siskiyou mountains of Southern Oregon, White Oak Farm (WOF) is a small, non-profit farm-based education center. WOF is dedicated to cultivating connections between people and their local ecosystems by:

Pursuing community food security, Fostering agricultural and ecological diversity, and Teaching the arts of sustainable living.

White Oak Farm strives to serve as a model of sustainable land use and living. Each year we host a variety of programs, including school visits and summer camps for children.  We grow organic produce for schools, food banks, and local customers, and flower and vegetable seed for several national seed companies.  We also operate a native plant nursery for restoration projects and local landscapes.
