Join us for an educational lecture by Dr. Jeff LaLande, titled “When Timber was King: The Rise & Decline of Southern Oregon’s Wood Products Industry.” Archaeologist and historian Jeff LaLande will explore what was once Southern Oregon’s greatest job creator: the timber industry. Dr. LaLande, a retired professor at Southern Oregon University and a contributor to the Oregon Encyclopedia, will discuss why logging holds such an important place in our history, why it has declined, and what its future may be.
