On Thursday, April 8, starting at 6 p.m., North Coast Communities for Watershed Protection will be hosting a Zoom talk featuring economist Ernie Niemi.  For more than 40 years, Niemi has investigated and described the relationship between the natural environment and local economies, in Oregon and elsewhere.  In this presentation, he will draw on his experience to help his audience develop a solid understanding of both the positive and negative economic effects of logging on Oregon and its coastal communities.  Currently, Niemi is President of Natural Resource Economics, a consultancy in Eugene, and Co-Director of the nationwide Forest Carbon Coalition.  

The event is free and open to all.  Here's the Zoom link for the event:   https://us02web.zoom.us/j/89686772661?pwd=TmJBbG1Ub0pMR3BQVXc1aDNnU3NnZz09
