The Olympic Forest Coalition welcomes Dr. Catharine Copass to the Board of Directors.
Dr. Copass is a Port Angeles-based ecologist. She has been working for the National Park Service on projects monitoring landscape changes and mapping plant communities in and around national parks in Washington state. She brings a wide range of technical and field skills and is excited to have this opportunity to help OFCO develop an independent assessment of the status of the state forests.
