Tualatin Riverkeepers hosts Pint-Sized Science, a speaker series featuring innovative science and natural climate solutions being used right here in Washington County to improve watershed health.
Tualatin Riverkeepers is proud to welcome Victoria Wingell with Oregon Wild and Brenna Bell with 350PDX for a discussion on the role mature and old-growth forests play in providing clean water and how we can utilize old-growth forests in our fight to sequester carbon and reduce the impacts of climate change.
About the speakers:
Victoria joined Oregon Wild in 2022 to organize grassroots efforts for the Climate Forests campaign, a national effort to secure durable protections for mature and old-growth forests: the underdogs in our fight to sequester carbon and reduce the impacts of climate change.
Brenna builds capacity for 350PDX‘s Forest Defense Team as the Forest Climate Manager. In 2020, while staff attorney for Bark, Brenna helped launch the Pacific NW Forest Climate Alliance, bringing together over 60 groups across the northwest to share resources and take action improving forest management to build climate resiliency and mitigate climate change, but has been advocating for forests and ecological restoration for over 20 years.
This event will take place on Wednesday, August 17th at the Ancestry Brewhall in Tualatin. The event is free and open to the public, but space is limited and registration is required. Doors will open at 5:30 PM, with the speaker beginning at 6 PM. Ordering food and mingling with community members before the event begins is encouraged!
