Forestry Events - 8 min 21 sec ago
Wednesday, March 15, 2017 7:00 PM - 9:00 PM

The NW Fire Science Consortium along with Oregon State University's College of Forestry and the Forestry & Natural Resources Extension Program are sponsoring Era of Megafires in Corvallis, OR on March 15th from 7pm-9pm at the LaSells Stewart Center. The film focuses on how we as a society can shift our cultural views of fire, learn to embrace it as an inevitable and crucial to our landscapes, and finally, learn to co-exist with it more peacefully through learning, adaptation, and pro-action.

The presented material comes in the form of fast-moving, short, topic-based talks interspersed with compelling video vignettes and features the work of wildfire photographer, John Marshall. Think TedX mixed with snappy documentary shorts and amazing photography. The videos are being created by award-winning documentary film company, North 40 Productions, of Wenatchee, WA.

This event is FREE, parking is FREE at Reser Stadium. Doors open at 6:30pm.

Woodland Discovery Workshops

Forestry Events - 8 min 21 sec ago
Thursday, March 23, 2017 5:30 PM - 8:00 PM

Purpose
This program is for forest owners thinking about managing their forestland and those folks interested in find-ing out what resources are available locally for supporting woodland management. It’s also an opportunity to learn more about how to tap into these resources, gather information and potentially access financial as-sistance for management activities such as thinning and fuels reduction.


Program

Come and join us for a great opportunity to learn more about what is available in your local area and who can provide support for and enhance your ability to manage your woodland property. We’ll have a variety of re-source folks in attendance who will provide a brief overview of their programs, including the My Blue Moun-tains Woodland project, Wallowa Resources, Oregon Department of Forestry Programs, Oregon State Univer-sity Extension Service, Natural Resource Conservation Service, Soil and Water Conservation District, Water-shed Councils, Tree Farm Program/Oregon Small Woodlands Association/Landowner Cooperatives, and Blue Mountains Cohesive Wildfire Strategy Project and Community Wildfire Protection Plans.


We’ll also be discussing woodland management planning, such as benefits of planning, what’s in a plan, how to get started and financial incentives. Finally, we’ll reserve plenty of time for questions and discussion with local resource professionals as well as woodland owners who are actively managing their woods.


Please call ahead to the OSU Extension Offices below so we can plan for adequate handouts and snacks.


For Island City, 541-963-1010; For Enterprise, 541-426-3143; For Pendleton: 541-278-5403
