Backpack Sprayer Calibration Workshop

Tuesday, June 10th, 5:00 - 7:00 pm, Gales Creek
OSU Extension’s Chal Landgren will instruct this hands-on workshop. Applying herbicides at the correct rate is essential to their effectiveness and safety. With a backpack sprayer, the application rate depends on your equipment and walking speed. In this class you will learn how to correctly calibrate a backpack sprayer to ensure that you apply herbicides at the correct rate. Bring your own equipment (sprayer and nozzles) if you have them and a calculator. Space is limited to 20 people and RSVP is required. To register call 503-397-3462. Directions will be provided upon RSVP.


Twilight Tour - Stream Restoration

Tour host Dan Kloppman worked with the Lower Columbia River Watershed Council and the Natural Resources Conservation Service to place large logs in and alongside the river in order to improve fish habitat. Margaret Magruder from the Watershed Council will join Dan to discuss how the project came about, how it was done, and how it is working so far. Co-sponsored by Columbia County Small Woodlands Association and OSU Extension Service. No RSVP necessary. Address: 66041 Apiary Rd., Rainier
