Film Title: Legacy of Fire: The Story of the Tillamook BurnExperience the power of a fast-moving wildfire as you witness the story of the Tillamook Burn, told by the men and women who knew this forest when it was devastated by fire in the 1930’s and 1940’s. Legacy of Fire is dramatic retelling of one of Oregon’s Worst natural disasters, and of the remarkable forest that grew from its ashes. Speaker: Doug Decker, State Forester  Following the film Doug will offer some historic perspective of the significance of the fire, its impact on the development and direction of ODF and OSU College of Forestry and most importantly, how we in Oregon and across the West need to be adjusting to new realities.  The talk will be followed by a moderated Q&A.
