Cape Arago Audubon Society Event

All are welcome at this February 12 Event

Cape Arago Audubon Society presents Chandra LeGue discussing her new book “Oregon’s Ancient Forests: A Hiking Guide” on February 12, 2020 at the Coos Bay Library at 7 PM. All are welcome, refreshments will be served, and a copy of the book will be raffled off for only $1 per chance. No need to be present to win.

Chandra LeGue, Western Oregon Field Coordinator for Oregon Wild, has published this guide to help you get to know and love Oregon’s incredible places. In the book you will find 91 awe-inspiring hikes that reveal the very soul of Oregon. Chandra will talk about some of the fundamentals of these forests – what makes an ancient forest, what types exist in Oregon, where they are, who manages them, why so few still survive, and what threats they continue to face. She’ll also highlight a variety of the hiking experiences found in the book, covering natural history, human history, flora and fauna, so you come away with a better understanding of these complex ecosystems and their extraordinary value.
