The Forest Service is graciously hosting us at Powers, in the Coast Range of southern Oregon. Here is a general map of the area. (Highway 42 at the top of the map is the road between Coos Bay and Roseburg). They are trading use of facilities for lichen inventories and FS learning. General plan: we will visit field sites in the mornings and work on specimens in the afternoons and evenings. Leaders: Teresa Bird (USFS) and Bruce McCune (OSU).

The Forest Service (Rogue River-Siskiyou National Forest - Powers Ranger District)

 is offering bunkhouses and a conference room available for scope work. Likely spots to visit include:

  • Coquille River Falls RNA.
  • Daphne Grove campground
  • Port Orford Cedar RNA
  • serpentinite areas


  • conference room
  • 4 beds. The other 8 should either pair up with roommate for floor space in a bedroom, request the living room, or camp in the yard. Additional housing to be determined at end of fire fighter season (another house will be available if fire staff are gone. But fires will likely still be active at that time.)
  • ability for campers to shower, cook, flush toilets, charge electronics, etc.

Bring your own food or arrange to cooperate with others.

Bring your own scopes, reference books, collecting materials, and tools, or cooperate with others on these.

Fees: $10 registration fee to be refunded to registrants who follow through and attend. 

More specifics on location will be distributed as the time approaches.
