KBO Research Biologist at Upcoming Living on Your Land Conference

The OSU Extension Land Steward Program and Rogue River Watershed Council will host the Living on Your Land Conference April 14, 2018 8 am to 6 pm at the Rogue Community College Redwood Campus in Grants Pass, Oregon. The one-day conference is for small farmers, small woodland owners, land owners or managers, wildlife enthusiasts, backyard gardeners and those interested in our region’s natural resources. KBO Research Biologist Dr. Sarah Rockwell will join a blue ribbon collection of foresters, botanists, biologists, working farmers, and other land management experts presenting more than two dozen 90-minute classes on a variety of topics related to natural resources and land management.

Sarah and Trout Unlimited Biologist Jay Doino will co-present the class “Birds and Fish That Reside in Your Streamside Backyard and How You Can Help Them”.

You can participate in up to four classes during the conference (there are several classes scheduled concurrently in four time blocks during the day). Classroom space is limited and some popular sessions will fill up early, so don’t delay in registering. Come expand your knowledge and gain a renewed enthusiasm and enhanced vision for your land. Join us at the conference and gain practical insight and tips you can put to use the next day!
