Event shared the whole truth

The conference on the forest at Nevada Union High School was a wonderful opportunity to hear from forest ecology experts and learn how our forests continue to evolve, and how intricate the relationship is between ecology and forest management.

After years of hearing how terrible it is to cut a tree, it was a pleasure to hear the whole truth, not just bits and pieces taken out of context in order to manipulate a public into thinking a certain way, as many environmental groups do. I was shocked to hear some attendants from these groups accuse the speakers of being “biased,” simply because the speakers did not say what perhaps the attendants wanted to hear. I applaud those who helped this very informative and lively conference on.
