I spent the day with some amazing photographers taking images that will be used to protect Oregon’s Tillamook and Clatsop State Forests. These two state forests cover over 800 square miles of beautiful coastal rain forest just west of the Portland metro area. They contain watersheds that are critical to Salmon recovery in the northwest and that serve as the drinking water supply for hundreds of thousands of Oregonians. Today, these forests are threatened by efforts to increase the level of industrial clear-cutting in sensitive areas. (Click on the images to view larger versions).
