The Sierra Club Tahoe Area Group invites you to join us on November 9, 2023 at 5pm -6:15pm for a virtual presentation entitled: Why are Sierra Nevada Forests in Crisis? What Can Activists Do? The speaker will be John Buckley, the Director of Central Sierra Environmental Resource Center.

Over the years, national forest management policies for the Sierra Nevada region have markedly changed.  There are key reasons.  Many activists may not be aware that, in some instances, public forest logging, biomass removal, and other mechanical forest treatments can be positive instead of negative. This powerpoint presentation can enable activists can be more effective at knowing when to oppose and when to support national forest projects.
The presentation will be filled with compelling and often dramatic photos.

John is a long-time leader with the Tuolumne Group of the Sierra Club for the Northern Yosemite region. He brings many years of experience from working as a Hot Shot firefighter and serving as an activist on the front lines for many regional conservation issues.

Time will be allotted for a Q&A session at the end!
