Brian Kelly
Restoration Coordinator, Hells Canyon Preservation Council
Joseph Canyon, OR
August 31, 2012

On the rim of Joseph Canyon, the Westies met with Brian Kelly, Restoration Coordinator for the Hells Canyon Preservation Council. He discussed fire suppression, forest management, and non-native grasses—issues close to home in Wallowa County. The night before a day of hiking in Joseph Canyon, Brian and his dog Jango, spent the evening singing campfire songs at the Westie camp on Starvation Ridge. After a lifetime in the woods, Brian’s knowledge of Wallowa County, both ecological and political, inspired the Westies to further focus the blurred line between science and politics.
