Readings for Week 3: Forests and Forest Products in Washington
Tuesday, April 12Today we look in detail at the forests of eastern Washington, including those now managed by the Yakama Nation that we will visit on our field trip, in Paul F. Hessburg and James K. Agee's An environmental narrative of Inland Northwest United States Forests, 1800-2000. It's long, but its pretty easy reading; no equations!
In class, we will have a guest expert, Dr. Keala Hagmann, who has worked extensively in the Eastside forests of the Pacific Northwest. She will discuss current issues in Pacific Northwest dry side forests, and answer questions that you have posted. By 7:00 p.m on Monday, April 13 (so Dr. Hagmann will have some heads-up time), please post two questions you would like to hear Dr. Hagmann answer in her visit to our class.
