On October 24th, the Coast Fork Willamette Watershed Council welcomes U.S. Forest Service Cottage Grove Ranger District Botanist, Krista Farris, and District Ranger, K.C. Briggs for our October 2017 Science Pub presentation entitled The National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA): How and When to Get Involved with Large-Scale Projects on Your National Forests. This presentation will explain the NEPA process for the US Forest Service from the proposal stage of a project, to the public comment period and implementation. Ms. Farris and Ms. Briggs will discuss what goes into integrated resource restoration projects (IRR), vegetation management focused on sylviculture prescriptions, recreation, wildlife and botanical resources, fisheries and aquatic resources.

The Coast Fork Willamette Watershed Council hosts a free monthly public meeting series called the Coast Fork Science Pub on the fourth Tuesday of each month from 5-7pm at the Axe & Fiddle, 657 E. Main Street in Cottage Grove. The event begins with informal socializing, trivia, prizes and updates about the watershed and watershed council during the first hour. Then our Science Pub presentation begins at 6pm. Participants are encouraged to support the Coast Fork Willamette Watershed Council by ordering food & drinks from 5-7:30pm, as 10% of the sales from evening sales will benefit the Watershed Council. The event is free to the public and all ages are welcome. For further information, visit Coast Fork Willamette Watershed Council on Facebook and www.coastfork.org
