Mount Mazama: Ashes to Forest

Forest Health & Ecology Field Tour

Thursday, September 4, 2014 8:30 AM - 3:30 PM

Join Extension Forest Health Specialist, Dave Shaw and Extension Watershed Specialist, Paul Adams, along with your local agent Steve Bowers on a tour that will discuss the four basic western Oregon forest types as they developed in the shadow of Mount Mazama over 7,000 years ago.

Forest types being discussed will include oak savannah, Douglas-fir, mixed conifer and high elevation/lodgepole pine.

In each of the stops, topics of interest will include:

  • Occurrence of noxious weeds
  • Tree Species
  • Soil types
  • Insect & disease identification
  • Environmental influences
  • Wood qualities
  • Management implications

At the midpoint of the tour, we will eat lunch at the Diamond Lake Lodge.  Participants can bring their own or each will be required to pay for their own meal.  All other accommodations on the tour are included at no cost.  This includes van, handouts and refreshments along the way.

Registration is required as we need an accurate count to accommodate refreshments and transportation.  There will be a limited number of spaces for this event, so you are encouraged to register early.
