John Rose

Board member Washington State Chapter, Nature Conservancy

“What it will take to make a healthy forest?: The Nature Conservancy’s vision for the East Cascades”

Introduced by: Bob Holert

The forests of the East Cascades are very sick, and one symptom is that the forest has too many trees. The Nature Conservancy’s recent acquisition of 48,000 acres in Kittitas County creates an opportunity to change the way the forest is managed, but there are significant challenges to overcome. John will share those challenges and possible solutions during his presentation.
