Rural Living Field Day — Saturday, August 23.
Added By: Erica Stokes
8:30 AM - 2:00 PM
Register Now for Rural Living Field Day!

The 2014 Rural Living Field Day is set for Saturday, August 23, from 8:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. at Howell Territorial Park on Sauvie Island. To register, just visit the West Multnomah Soil & Water Conservation District website at www.wmswcd.org and click on “Events.” The cost is only $15 per person or $20 for families. Morning beverages and snacks will be served as well as a fully catered lunch!

Rural Living Field Day is a fun event for rural landowners and this year the event is sponsored by West Multnomah, Tualatin and Columbia Soil & Water Conservation Districts and the Organization of Small Woodland Owners. The event features speakers addressing a wide variety of issues that face rural homeowners, farmers, and land managers every day. Topics include wildlife, forests, pollinators, invasive weeds, orchards, crops and health soil, horse health and manure composting.

A partial list of speakers include:
Tonia Lordy; Director, Home Orchard Society
Mike Cloughesy, Oregon Forest Resources Institute

The location of the event will give participants the opportunity to visit a stream riparian area, a woodland stand, an orchard, a working organic farm and barn. Folks will participate in some hands-on demonstrations and will be able to ask the experts about specific concerns during the break-out sessions. Whether you’re a seasoned landowner or just starting your own farm, this is the event for you!

Rural Living Field Day is also a great time for landowners to meet each other and share concerns and ideas about their properties and operations, and make valuable professional and personal contacts.
