OSU College of Forestry Starker Lecture Series

2012 Watershed Moments: People, Forests, and Water

Water is an Essential Resource

In the coming year, both ongoing and new concerns about forest and water interactions are expected to generate increased interest among forest owners, managers, and the academic community. Questions and controversies concerning water protection policies and legal issues, coupled with emerging new information from paired watershed studies, provide a rich array of topics for this year's 2012 Starker Lecture Series.

The 2012 Starker Lecture Series will kick-off with a tie-in to the February 28 Oregon Forests and Water Symposium, sponsored by the Oregon Forest Resources Institute (OFRI). This all day symposium will provide updates on current issues, including paired watershed studies, herbicides, and point source vs. non-point source pollution. The three Starker Lectures that follow will explore selected forest and water issues more deeply, focusing on policy, the science of watersheds, and a global connections perspective. The Capstone Field Trip will offer a tour of the "Alsea Revisited" Watershed Study area.
