2015 OSWA Oregon Forest Fair

Forestry Events - 2 hours 4 min ago
Saturday, June 20, 2015 9:00 AM - 5:00 PM

Many Oregonians care deeply about the environment in the abstract, but lack knowledge about local ecosystems. Forest landowners have been quietly working in the background, on their properties, yet have a tremendous amount of knowledge and experience to add to our state’s treasure. As public support for local agriculture increases it is surprising how little public awareness there is that forests, too, are a traditional and important part of the working landscape and how beneficial it is to local communities. OSWA would like to improve this knowledge with the Oregon Forest Fair.

Natural Resources Leadership Academy

Forestry Events - 2 hours 4 min ago
Friday, June 19, 2015 8:30 AM - 5:00 PM

Oregon State University's Natural Resources Leadership Academy (NRLA) is a unique opportunity for professionals and graduate students to enhance leadership skills, gain knowledge and connect with others in the natural resources field. In today's complicated world, each of us has a responsibility to share in leadership. As a part of the NRLA, you will learn about the dimensions of leadership that help to resolve issues. Together we'll evaluate the skills that each of us bring to the table and learn ways to relate to working teams. Leadership is both a science and an art that can be developed by learning and through practice.  In your NRLA course(s), you'll learn to identify leadership concepts and watch how they play out during the various aspects of your course and field trips. As a result, when you get back home, you'll have the value added benefit of knowing that both your knowledge about natural resource topics and your "toolbox" to manage those issues have been greatly enhanced.

For more information, or to register, see the NRLA Website.
