STA brings back speaker series


Last updated 4/25/2023 at 3:50pm

The Sisters Trails Alliance (STA) is bringing back its Speaker Series with an event at The Belfry on Tuesday, May 2.

With so much discussion about forest management, wildlife inventory, and extreme weather in the news lately, STA wil host George Wuerthner, a local ecologist who has published more than three dozen books, to share his extensive experience and knowledge of protecting and preserving wilderness and wildlife. He will share another perspective on wildfire and wildfire management.

“We believe strongly in hearing from experienced and diverse advocates of our natural world and look forward to enjoying a stimulating evening at The Belfry,” said Executive Director Scott Penzarella.

The event is free, but STA asks that attendees consider making a donation to STA at the door to support the venue and the venue sponsorship.

Food and beverages will be available for purchase at the bar starting at 5 p.m. The speaker will begin at 5:30 p.m. and host a Q&A session at the end of his presentation.

STA is a nonprofit organization whose mission is to protect and preserve the outdoor experience. In cooperation with Sisters Ranger District, the organization builds and maintains non-motorized trails in the Sisters area including the renowned Peterson Ridge Trail system. STA produces a free trail map, hosts an annual speaker series, and supports trail-related activities. The organization is an active advocate for trails and trail-related issues for the Sisters community.
