Living the Landscape: Response and Responsibility
Monday, October 10, 7:30 p.m.
Templeton Student Center, Council Chamber
In 23 years with the U.S. Forest Service, Flora served in many positions including Forest Supervisor on the Lewis and Clark National Forest in north-central Montana and on the Humboldt-Toiyabe National Forest in Nevada and eastern California.
During her tenure, she dealt with a number of major conservation challenges, facing some of the most intractable commodity interests in the United States with a stake in using public lands for private purposes. Flora is well known for her focus on openness and public involvement in decision-making related to difficult matters of natural resource use. She has been recognized for her leadership by environmental groups, tribes, community organizations, her agency, and Sunset Magazine, with its award for Environmental Inspiration.
Flora resigned from the Forest Service in 2000 specifically to call attention to the far greater threat of harassment, intimidation and lawlessness that haunts Forest Service employees. She also started a non-profit organization, Sustainable Obtainable Solutions, dedicated to ensuring sustainability of public lands and the communities that depend on them.
