Conversations On The (Public) Forest

The more things change, the more they stay the same. 

Did anybody think in the early 90s that we would still be talking about the appropriate uses of public forests two decades later?  We're still debating the future of the spotted owl and timber funding for counties. And the road show known as "Conversations on the Forest" continues in Lane County. 

Forester Roy Keene and county commissioner candidate Kevin Matthews join us to talk about the ties between rural economic prosperity and forest health.
