Blast From The Past: Hippies Planting Trees

Dec 11, 2017

The height of the hippie years in America coincided with the peak years of logging in the country. 

And those trends came together in forest replanting efforts staffed by people who came to the Oregon woods to get away from "the establishment." 

Robert Hirning was part of one of those, based in Takilma, called "Green Side Up." 

The story is kept in SODA, the Southern Oregon Digital Archives at Southern Oregon University. 

The repository is called Stories of Southern Oregon.

We begin a regular visit to the archives with a chat with Robert Hirning.
