Mass Timber Committee: Sustainable Forestry Tour
Tour two working forests just outside of Seattle - one recently thinned, the other about to be thinned. Explore these sites with a forester and learn about climate-smart forest practices and how to balance ecological benefits with timber harvests.
- Tour Location: North Bend, WA
- Tour Departure Point/Time: North Bend Safeway Parking lot (460 SW Mt Si Blvd, North Bend, WA 98045) at 2:45pm. We will carpool to the forest sites from here as parking is limited at the site.
- Tour Date And Time: Tuesday, October 4th 3-5pm.
- Accessibility: This live, in-person forest tour is presented by AIA Seattle’s Mass Timber committee. There will likely be accessibility challenges for the wheelchair bound on the tour due outdoor paths and walkways. There will not be a restroom available on-site, but restrooms are available at the Safeway parking location.
- COVID Safety: Masking for carpooling is strongly encouraged, but up to the discretion of participants. Masking on the outdoor tour is recommended but not required.
