Film Screening & Discussion with Kent Woodruff
“One Stick at a Time” is a thoughtful, encouraging journey of restoration, profiling the efforts of the Methow Beaver Project in Washington State, to deal with and adapt to the effects of climate change. Dealing with the environmental changes around us can seem overwhelming, monumental even, but the film is a hopeful story of how we can change the roadmap forward, and do what we can to set the stage for living in a changing and changeable world.
Kent Woodruff, a US Forest Service biologist from Winthrop, Washington, has been helping resource managers across the west engage in discussions about what we can do to soften the impacts of climate change. For more than 36 years Kent has been a biologist. Now he knows that all the resources we manage, from forests and rangelands, to streams and rivers, to roads and trails, to noxious weeds, to sensitive plants, to our important recreation areas are all facing additional stress from climate change that is increasing each year.
