Lecture Series:

The Starker Lecture Series is sponsored by the Starker Family in Honor of T.J. and Bruce Starker and is supported by the OSU College of Forestry and the Oregon Forest Resources Institute.

The upcoming Starker Lecture Series will address the issue of sustainability from a broad perspective, ranging from sustainable production and use of forest products to maintaining strong rural communities and the working forests on which they depend. Program speakers will examine key approaches for promoting sustainability, such as forest management certification, green building standards and forest-dependent community initiatives.
