Philomath, OR 97370
The annual meeting starts with lunch at noon, followed by guest speaker Peter Hayes, organizational updates, and election of officers.
Guest Speaker Peter Hayes will join us for a talk titled “Wood We Need From the Forests of Home” . Peter will share the story and opportunities of the Build Local Alliance.
Since 2005 this non-profit has served as a community catalyst helping forest owners, millers, distributors, designers, makers, and users to work in partnerships that connect good, local wood with inspiring, local projects. In addition to supporting the Build Local Alliance, Peter and his family own and care for Hyla Woods’ experimental forests and milling operation near Forest Grove. With six generations of sawdust in his veins, Peter’s perspectives have been shaped by his service on Oregon’s Board of Forestry, ODF’s Committee for Family Forestlands, a variety of non-profit boards, and by the Forests of Home.
Cost: $15.00 for lunch (Valley Catering - menu: House-Made Chicken Pot Pie). RSVP to OSU Benton County Extension office 541-766-6750 or email@example.com
