ANNOUNCEMENTS

WHEN WHO – WHAT – WHERE
Wednesday, December 12, 2018, 10am Local Working Group Meeting
The Yamhill Soil & Water Conservation District (District) and the Yamhill USDA-Natural Resources Conservation Service are hosting a Local Working Group Meeting on December 12, 2018 starting at 10:00am in the Miller Woods Conference Room, located at 15589 NW Orchard View Rd. McMinnville, OR 97128.

The purpose of this meeting is to identify local natural resource concerns (example: roadside erosion, poor water quality, inadequate water storage, weeds), and specific areas in our county to determine future grant requests for funding. Your input is a valuable part of this process, and you are invited to attend.
If this doesn’t pertain directly to you, but you know a landowner that may be interested, please pass this invitation along to them! Thank you.
Sincerely,
Thomas E. Hoskins
District Conservationist
The Yamhill SWCD and the NRCS are equal opportunity employers, and providers.

Spring, 2019 Master Woodland Manager Training
I am very excited to announce that our next local MWM training is coming right up, in spring 2019! This class will span Washington, Yamhill, Polk and Benton Counties under the shared direction of Brad Withrow-Robinson and myself. We have dates nailed down (starting April 6th) and applications will be available within the next two weeks. We have limited space in the class – so if you know of anyone that you think would be a great candidate for the MWM training, please send their names my way so that I can send them an application. Additionally, some of you in Washington and Yamhill Counties can expect to hear from me after the New Year about helping out here or there with some of the class sessions. I am hoping to combine a Columbia County MWM class with Clatsop County a couple years down the road.
Finally, please let me know if you have an updated email, have moved, or have other pertinent life updates. I would like to share will you that we lost one of our MWM’s, Art Dummer (class of 2000) who sadly passed away this fall. Art was active in Washington County for a very long time and will be missed.
Thanks again for all that you do and hope to see you in 2019. Have a wonderful holiday season,
Amy
