2017 Oregon Department of Forestry – Amazing Community Engagement

My colleague Marcus Kauffman at the Oregon Department of Forestry asked me to help out doing some documentary work to tell the story about how several communities in the Northwest are trying to bring environmentalist, forestry and logging interests, and Federal land management agencies together to create healthier forests and healthier rural communities.

My favorite story was the community of John Day in central Oregon. You can read Marcus’s beautiful article with his great photography here, Restoration Renaissance, A New Paradigm in John Day.

Here’s one of my favorite clips from the companion documentary we produced (all included in the above article).
