Chuck Willer, executive director of the Coast Range Association.

ASTORIA — CREATE is sponsoring a free Ecology Speaker Series at 7 p.m. Thursday, Feb. 21, at Clatsop Community College’s Columbia Hall, Room 219.

The series welcomes Chuck Willer, director of the Coast Range Association, who will present “Wall Street Forests & the Climate Crisis: Putting People Before Profits.” He will discuss how the Green New Deal applies to Clatsop County’s high-density carbon forests.

Following Willer’s presentation will be Mary Scurlock, a policy and technical consultant for the Oregon Stream Protection Coalition who will address “Private Forests, Public Water: Why Oregon’s Stream Protection Laws are Failing.”

Scurlock will share her thoughts on how and why Oregon’s Board of Forestry and Environmental Quality Commission are failing to protect the public’s interest in clean water and wildlife on state and private forestlands.
