Cascade Head Biosphere Reserve-Past, Present & Future
January 14 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm
Presenter: Paul Robertson The Cascade Head Biosphere Reserve (CascadeHead.org), was originally established in 1976 and is part of the UNESCO Man and the Biosphere Programme. In 2015, it was expanded and reauthorized, and now is Oregon’s only biosphere reserve—one of only 29 in the US, and 701 around the world. Prescribed to be “learning places for sustainable development,” biosphere reserves are testing and proving grounds for interdisciplinary approaches to understanding and managing changes within the intersections of society, economy, and the environment. A history of the people, the land, and the sea is explored with a focus on the future and the promise of demonstrating to the world how economy can be seen in concert with the environment.
