eDNA Forestry Field Tour

May 29 @ 8:00 am - 3:00 pm PDT

Evaluating Wildfire Impacts on Aquatic Biodiversity Across Forest Management Techniques in Oregon’s Cascade Region

The 2020 Labor Day Fires led to diverse fire severities and varying effects on riparian ecosystems. The Sustainable Forest Initiative funded study used environmental DNA (eDNA) to examine aquatic biodiversity across 30 sites impacted by the 2020 wildfires. During our field tour, we’ll explore three of these sites, demonstrating differences in fire impact, management responses, and the resilience of aquatic ecosystems and riparian vegetation through eDNA analysis and field observations.

Speakers will include:
Brooke Penaluna with U.S. Forest Service
Laura Six with Weyerhaeuser
Ashley Coble with the National Council for Air and Stream Improvement
Jake Verschuyl with the National Council for Air and Stream Improvement
