Forest Health Watch Soil Sample Update (Virtual)
Tuesday, June 20, 2023
Join the Issaquah Alps Trails Club (IATC) and Dr. Joey Hulbert from the Forest Health Watch in this virtual event to review the results of soil samples studied from previous collections on Tiger and Squak Mountains.
The Forest Health Watch is a program to engage Pacific Northwest communities in tree health research and learning. Through multiple methods of engagement, community scientists are advancing knowledge and catalyzing efforts to discover solutions to pressing forest health issues in the region. The pilot project of the program was co-designed to investigate the dieback of Western Red Cedar (Thuja plicata) because it was identified as a primary concern by many partners. The purpose of this presentation is to demonstrate how community scientists have contributed to accelerate research and foster shared understanding about the dieback of Western Red Cedar.
Dr. Joey Hulbert is a USDA NIFA Postdoctoral Research Fellow based at the WSU Research and Extension Center in Puyallup, Washington. He is also the Director of the Forest Health Watch program. Through his background in forest health and his passion for public engagement in science, Dr. Hulbert engages communities in research about the consequences of climate change on the health of forests.
