Film details alliance at Colville National Forest

The Spokesman-Review

A new documentary about collaboration on the Colville National Forest will be shown tonight at the Lincoln Center, 1316 N. Lincoln St., in Spokane.

“From Controversy to Common Ground” tells the story of the Northeast Washington Forestry Coalition. In 2002, the Colville National Forest was in a virtual lockdown. Lawsuits from environmental groups had halted nearly all of the timber sales. Members of the local timber industry and environmental groups started working together to find areas of agreement on forest management. Since then, the coalition has supported more than 20 forest projects. The film’s free showing kicks off with drinks and appetizers at 6 p.m. At 7 p.m., Duane Vaagen of Vaagen Brothers Lumber Co. will introduce the documentary. A question-and-answer period will follow the film. To RSVP, contact or call (509) 570-2166.
