How the Whidbey Community Saved Our Old Growth Forests

How the Whidbey Community Saved Our Old Growth Forests

Sue Ellen White, longtime resident and journalist, will tell the story of saving Whidbey’s old growth forests. Less than five percent of the forests in our Puget lowlands contain old-growth remnants. And rarer still are floating forests like that at South Whidbey State Park. Learn the fascinating story of how the Whidbey community took on the state and the forest industry to save the 255-acres at the park known as Classic U from clearcutting beginning in 1977. Sue Ellen is a founding member of Save the Trees, which spearheaded the 15-year conservation effort that forever changed forest practices in Washington State and pioneered new environmental preservation programs.
