Forestry and Natural Resources

Out there for Oregon’s forests. Here for Oregonians.

Forests and the diverse natural resources associated with them are an important part of  Central Oregon’s heritage, economy, and way of life.

As your local Forestry and Natural Resources Extension agent, my job is to utilize the latest research and innovations from Oregon State University and other institutions to provide science-based education and expertise. Whether you are interested in making your property safe from wildfire, learning how to better manage your land, growing your forest-based business, or are an aspiring naturalist, I am here to point you in the right direction.

I also serve on local community-based organizations and groups, such as the Deschutes Collaborative Forest Project and Ochoco Forest Restoration Collaborative, using independent and scientific expertise and facilitation skills to help solve our complicated issues.

Below are several ways you can learn from, and get involved with our Forestry and Natural Resources program. You may also call our local office or email me to get in touch with me directly.

See you in the Woods!
