The Forest Electronic Notification and Reporting System, known more poetically as FERNS, is a tool that enables citizens to monitor forestry activity in their watersheds of interest. A workshop in utilizing this tool is being offered on Monday, April 26, 6 p.m., by Coast Range Forest Watch and the Kalmiopsis Audubon Society. The event is free and open to all.
Teresa Bird, who works on the Spray Free Coast campaign in Coos and Curry counties for the two organizations, will walk participants through creating a FERNS subscription and using the tool to keep track of forestry activity.
