On Monday, October 28 from 6-9 pm PT at the Historic Central Hotel in Burns, Oregon, the USDA Eastern Oregon Agricultural Research Center will team up with the Upper Snake River Tribes Foundation for an evening of interactive discussion on rangeland management challenges in a dynamic climate.
Presentations will explore how historical and current variability in weather and climate influence a variety of rangeland management issues including restoration, juniper management, wildfire, and grazing. A new literature review for climate change adaptation strategies for rangeland managers in the Upper Snake River Watershed in Oregon, Idaho, and Nevada will be shared as well. Come and join us for an evening of learning and discussion. Snacks and refreshments will be provided. No registration fee.
Contact Chad Boyd (541-589-4990) or Jason Kesling (541-891-9878) for more information.
