Field Notes: Blue Mountains Forest Defense

 

In this Earth Day segment of "Field Notes,” Sophie Smith speaks with Karen Coulter, director and co-founder of the Blue Mountains Biodiversity Project (BMBP). The discussion explores the critical ecological role of the mature and old growth forests on public lands to the east of the Cascades as “natural climate solutions” and BMBP’s decades-long fight to defend these vital ecosystems from commercial logging facilitated by the US Forest Service. Listen in to learn about how to support BMBP’s ongoing forest defense efforts this summer on the ground as a field volunteer. Visit www.bmbp.org to learn more.
