Oaks in the Umpqua
June 23 @ 8:30 am - June 24 @ 5:00 pm
Oaks in the Umpqua is a two-day comprehensive workshop for current/prospective oak habitat landowners and managers. Over the course of two days, participants will have the opportunity to engage with and learn from experts on oak and oak-related topics (fire, wildlife, management, ecology, threats, and more).
Day 1 (June 23) will be a field tour based at Mildred Kanipe Memorial Park in Oakland. Participants will spend half of the day rotating in small groups between various educational stations, and the other half of the day touring oak restoration sites on private properties nearby. A BBQ lunch will be served. It will be outdoors and field-based.
Day 2 (June 24) will offer a series of sessions centered around oak (oak health, wildlife and oak, oak restoration and management, and how to get it all done). It will be held indoors in the auditorium at Phoenix Charter School in Roseburg. A boxed deli lunch will be served. During the lunch hour, participants will have the opportunity to visit with local agencies and groups at their informational displays, as well as attend some demonstrations showing how to use oak harvested from restoration projects.
