Scientists and researchers from the Eastern Oregon Agricultural Research Center (EOARC), in cooperation with Oregon State University (OSU), the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) and the Agricultural Research Service (ARS), have organized an exceptional opportunity for community and public agency members to learn the latest updates on research conducted throughout the state with the 2012 Range Field Day. “A Systems Approach to Solving Rangeland Management Issues” is Tuesday, June 26th from 9 AM to 4 PM at the Northern Great Basin Experimental Range approximately 10 miles west of Riley, Oregon.
Researchers will provide updates from EOARC in Burns and Union and OSU in Corvallis and La Grande, in addition to presentations on juniper management, invasive annual grass management, and revegetation. The agenda also includes a poster session providing an opportunity to discuss with and ask questions of the scientists conducting the research. A detailed schedule is available as a PDF download at http://oregonstate.edu/dept/eoarc/.
Anyone interested in attending is invited to participate in the day’s learning activities and workshops. Registration is free and a complimentary continental breakfast will be provided at the time of registration from 7:30 to 9:00 AM. Registrants will also receive a free lunch. The EOARC is a cooperative research effort between OSU and USDA-ARS focusing on rangeland ecology and restoration of wildlands, environmentally compatible livestock systems, forage crops, and alternative livestock systems in the sagebrush-steppe of the Great Basin and inland coniferous forests of the Pacific Northwest. The Center's research program is unique in the integration of research about beef cattle, rangeland, wildlife, watershed, and forest management.
