Resilient Forests for Nature & People of the Rogue Valley
Presented by DARREN BORGIAS

Darren Borgias, Southwestern Oregon Forest Conservation Director for The Nature Conservancy (TNC), will give a Zoom presentation and invite dialogue about “Resilient Forests for Nature and People of the Rogue Valley”.
Darren Borgias has guided TNC protection and restoration work in the Rogue Valley since 1987, with projects spanning the Table Rocks, vernal pools, grasslands, oak and pine woodland, unique serpentine habitats, and dry forests ringing the valley. Since 2004, Darren has focused on expanding the partnership of local and regional groups and agencies supporting proactive forest restoration and controlled burning. Darren has additionally helped to advance a 20-year strategy to restore resiliency to forests which once again may be sustained by “mild” fire that works for nature and people.
