    I received an invite to a guest presentation by Dr. Patrick Moore and thought I would pass along the information.

    Here is a direct copy of the invite I received.
    <p class=”MsoNormal”>Hi Friends,</p>
    <p class=”MsoNormal”></p>
    <p class=”MsoNormal”>I’d like to invite you to an event that Seneca and the UO Center for Sustainability are co-hosting on Thursday, October 11 at 6p.</p>
    <p class=”MsoNormal”></p>
    <p class=”MsoNormal”>Known as The Sensible Environmentalist, Dr. Patrick Moore has been a leader in the environmental movement for more than 40 years. He is a co-founder of Greenpeace where he served as the Canadian President for nine years and as a Director of Greenpeace International for six years. Today, Dr. Moore is committed to finding solutions to our environmental issues by striking a balance between the needs of people and the need to protect the environment. His environmental policy is based squarely on science and logic.</p>
    <p class=”MsoNormal”></p>
    <p class=”MsoNormal”>As Chair of the Sustainable Forestry Committee of the Forest Alliance of BC, he led the process of developing the “Principles of Sustainable Forestry” which were adopted by a majority of the industry.</p>
    <p class=”MsoNormal”></p>
    <p class=”MsoNormal”>Dr. Moore published Trees are the Answer, a photo-book that provides insight into how forests work and how they can play a powerful role in solving many of our current environmental problems.</p>
    <p class=”MsoNormal”></p>
    <p class=”MsoNormal”>He continues to push for sensible environmentalism with optimism for our future and a love of humanity.</p>
    <p class=”MsoNormal”></p>
    <p class=”MsoNormal”>We hope you can make it to this unique event.  We have created an event page on Facebook.  Please check it out and click the “interested” or “going” buttons if you are considering attending so we can try to get a ballpark headcount.  Also please feel free to share with your friends.  It is free, and all are welcome.</p>

    I received notice that the venue for this presentation by Dr. Patrick Moore has been changed to 1415 Kincaid. October 11, 6-7:30.

    It should be an interesting perspective on forest management.
