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’.
The March meeting featured 'Urban Forestry' as a topic. Katie Lompa from ODF provided an excellent presentation on Trends and Issues in Urban Forestry. Furthermore, several web-page links were provided to obtain more insight and also prompt our members to seek training and more engagement with these issues.

New announcement for spring 2015
The annual High School Forestry Skills Contest will be hosted by COCC on May 1 and 2. We will be needing judges to help with the contest. The events will occur on the afternoon/early evening of Friday May 1 (indoor events) and morning to early afternoon of May 2 (outdoor events. If you are willing to help please contact Ron Boldenow at firstname.lastname@example.org or 541-383-7754.
Want to earn a bit of coffee money in your retirement? The Forest Technology Program at COCC is in need of an experienced forester to give our equipment a bit of Tender Loving Care. We need someone willing to work independently, part time for a few weeks cleaning, sharpening, oiling, testing and inventorying equipment so that all is accounted for and in good working condition. Hours are very flexible. If you are interested, please contact Ron Boldenow at email@example.com or 541-383-7754.
Thanks everyone, call or email if you have questions or further suggestions for this meeting.
