May


May 14: Managing Woodland Roads for Forest Landowners

Does it pay to build all-weather roads?  For timber owners, historically log prices are higher during the wet months of the year in western Oregon.  All-weather roads allow you to easily get around on your property any season or time of year.  But, economically, do they make sense for the small parcel landowners? Want to learn about roads in general?

OSU Forester Steve Bowers’ Managing Woodland Roads: A Field Guide will be used in this class.  Each participant will get a free copy, an $11.00 value if ordered through OSU.  This 2-hour class will cover the basics of the book’s contents with an emphasis on easements, rock quality, culvert design, cross drainage structures, wet weather hauling and some “Points to Ponder,” tips on maintenance and management of your woodland roads. 

Class will be at Tillamook Bay Community College, 4301 3rd Street on May 14, 2014 from 5:30PM – 7:30PM. 

Registration fee is $20 and includes a free copy of Steve’s new book.  You must register by May 2, 2014. Class size is limited so register early.

To register stop by the Tillamook County Extension Service office at 2204 Fourth Street in Tillamook or download a registration form at:

April 2: Art to Market: Producing your Product

The Bay City Arts Center in collaboration with the Oregon State University’s Open Campus present a new program called Art to Market. This program will consist of 3 workshops designed to provide tools, resources, information, and inspiration to local artists interested in taking their passion and turning it into profit. The first workshop, "Producing your Product" is scheduled for Wednesday, April 2 from 5:30pm - 8:30pm at the Bay City Arts Center. This course is open to individuals of all ages with an interest in the Arts.

The "Producing your Product" workshop will be led by local artist and high school art teacher Breanna Moran, local artist and photographer, Charles Wooldridge, and local graphic designer, Rick Henry. Each of these artists have years of industry experience covering a diverse array of arts mediums and interests. There will be information provided to help artists of all types including: pottery, photography, painting, hand-made goods and textiles, stone sculpting, and greeting card creation to just name a few.

Upcoming workshops in this series include "Promoting your Product" and "Profiting from your Passion" held in late April and early May. Tuition is $10 per class, or $25 for all three if you are a Bay City Arts Center member. All supplies and handouts for the course will be provided and light snacks and refreshments will be served.

April 16: Web Soil Survey and Other Internet Tools for Agriculture and Forest Landowners

Oregon State University Tillamook County Extension Service and Tillamook Bay Community College are offering a workshop to help you learn how to use the Web Soil Survey.  A soil survey is an inventory of the different soil types and their location in the county. The Web Soil Survey is a useful web-based tool that was created, and is maintained, by the Natural Resource and Conservation Service.  You can use several methods for choosing a location of interest.  An aerial photo is available so you can select your property.  Information is available about what soils are present, their characteristics, agriculture or forest productivity, suitability for using heavy equipment, and much more. 

However, the Web Soil Survey is not always easy to use.  Bring a location description of your property (Address or Latitude & Longitude or Section, Township & Range) and leave the class with your own Soil Survey Report (an important part of a written management plan).  If you think that this type of information would be valuable to you and you are not familiar with the Web Soil Survey, this workshop might be just what you are looking for.  If time allows, we will also look at some other internet tools to help you manage your property. 

Class will be at Tillamook Bay Community College, 4301 3rd Street on April 16, 2014 from 5:30PM – 8:30PM. Registration fee is $25 to cover the costs of handouts and refreshments.  You must register by March 30, 2014. Class size is limited so register early--class is $25 if you register by March 30

To register stop by the Tillamook County Extension Service office at 2204 Fourth Street in Tillamook or download a registration form at:
