EAST MORAINE COMMUNITY FOREST — To prevent the destruction of a forest stand on the East Moraine Community Forest, a thinning project is planned to reduce the spread of an outbreak of bark beetles near the Turner Lane trailhead.

On Saturday, Jan. 28, about 25 local snowshoers and cross-country skiers gathered to brave the snowy terrain and learn more about the project — and the bark-eating beetle that has ravaged forests through the West and now threatens trees throughout Northeast Oregon.
