Upcoming Events 

Next Meeting:

  • Tuesday, April 16th, 6 p.m. at the Steelhead Brewery.  Forest Pollinators, Christine Buhl, ODF Statewide Entomologist.  Oregon is home to over 500 species of bees, which are responsible for pollinating many of our staple crops and plants in rural and urban landscapes.  Often overlooked are bees present in Oregon forests.  Who and where are they? What can we do to protect them?  We will discuss how Oregon is tackling enhancing pollinator health and habitat and what we can do to help with forest management.
