Deeper into Old-Growth Debate: Books, Exhibit, Groups


Deeper into old-growth debate: books, exhibit, groups Enormous and complex, the old-growth forest question (see our report starting on page 54) involves matters as simple as plant identification and as far-reaching as foreign trade, rain-forest ecology, and modern forest management.

The exhibit, books, and organizations listed here can help you ground yourself in many of the issues at hand.

Exhibit shows the whole picture

Staged at the World forestry Center in Portland, Old Growth Forests: Treasure in Transition is the most complete, evenhanded old-growth exhibit anywhere. It defines old growth, lays out all sides of the debate, and closes with a videotape presenting the views of different interest groups.

The exhibit, in the center's Merlo Hall, runs 9 to 5 daily through November 4. Admission is $3, $2 for seniors and ages 6 through 18. The center is just north of U.S. 26 in the Zoo/OMSI complex, about a mile west of downtown Portland.
