Skyline Living Lecture Series

Please join us for the first two presentations of 2023, both very relevant to Skyline living.

“Building Forest Resiliency in a Time of Climate Change” 2/16

Scheduled on Thursday, February 16 at 7 p.m., we will have an important discussion for Northwest forest landowners and all of our Skyline neighbors in this time of rapidly changing climate. Figuring out how to plant, grow & steward a climate adapted forest is a fascinating and relevant topic.  The evening will begin with a video presentation by Kirk Hanson of Northwest Natural Resources Group (NNRG), an ecological forestry consulting service. This will be followed by our own Laura Taylor, forest conservationist for West Multnomah Soil & Water Conservation District who will bring the topic a bit closer to home. She will provide information about resources which are available to help us realize a forestry plan that improves forest health while reducing wildfire risk. Ample time will be provided to answer your questions.

“Skyline Elk”

This topic will be in March.  The date will be published on SRN’s Newsline and on the Grange’s website soon. Many of our properties are shared with occasional visits of Skyline herds, sometimes one individual and other times up to 90.  Come learn about them.  Ben Cate, Wildlife Biologist, at Sauvie Island Division of Oregon Fish & Wildlife will discuss the lifecycle, habitat, territory, reproduction, hoof disease, hunting regulations, and elk proof fences.  Get to know these 4-legged neighbors.
