Changes in the Land 2/17

Tuesday, February 18, 2020

Dr. Stephen Dow Beckham will examine the impact of Euro-American settlement in Oregon in this illustrated lecture that connects directly with Rising, Dispatches from the New American Shore. Among the topics he’ll cover: logging, lumbering, log transport by water, farming, river channelization, harbor dredging, jetty construction, imposition of the cadastral (grid) survey system, dams and reservoirs, suppression of fire ecology, invasive species, mining-tailings-runoff from mine shafts, uranium processing, unexploded ordnance (Boardman Bombing Range), power line and natural gas pipeline corridors, interstate highways and urbanization. He’ll also use baseline, primary documents to reconstruct the historic landscape of the Willamette River from the Columbia confluence to Willamette Falls. Presented by the Oswego Heritage Council.
