Chapter: Central Oregon
A reminder once again, Dan Galecki is the current Central Oregon Chapter Chair. Please direct any questions to Dan, and monitor postings of chapter events on www.forestry.org, or check www.facebook.com, search for ‘Central Oregon SAF’.
If you missed the September 2012 Meeting, Tom Walker has supplied our chapter with the power-point file that supplements his presentation about his involvement with the Tumalo Creek watershed. Please look under the segment 'Chapter Documents' and view the entire file as pdf.
For the February 11th meeting with Geoff Babb,’ Prescribed Fire in the Wilderness’, a pdf of that presentation has been made available. Please scroll-down and look under ‘Chapter Documents’
This is a short notice…The April meeting for Central Oregon SAF will be next Tuesday, April 9th at Boston’s Restaurant, at 630pm.
This is a special Tuesday meeting, and a departure once again from our usual Thursday meeting. Our chapter is welcoming Katie Chipko, from Deschutes Children’s Forest as our featured guest speaker. She will talk about her organization, and how it relates to the USFS, Bend Parks and Recreation, Local School Districts, plus several other cooperators. Most importantly, she will talk about how important it is to involve and engage young people, and get them to be more orientated to the outdoors. The Deschutes Children’s Forest currently has an agenda and a variety of programs to reach out and teach children about nature, science, and of course forestry.
Before the meeting, please visit http://deschuteschildrensforest.org/ Please look at all their goals, calendar, and events listings, and start to understand their level of involvement in our community.
Once we all meet Katie and she begins her presentation, please also consider ways the Central Oregon chapter could possibly help or become involved in showing young people more about forestry and SAF.
Thanks, and hope to see everyone,
