What's Up?

  • Special Sunday Programs at Hesthavn
    On November 19, Valerie and Dale Mitchells will return to Hesthavn with a program on Migration, which will be underway by then.

  • Winter Wildlife Field Day 2018
    Save the date for the fourth annual Winter Wildlife Field Day at Finley on Saturday, March 10, 2018! Planning has already begun and volunteers are invited to join the dynamic team who will put this big day together over the next five months. Many more volunteers will be needed for the big event in March. Last year drew 450 participants, so we are gearing up for another great response from our community. Please contact Teri Engbring at ASC meetings or via email (on back of CHAT) to volunteer.

2017 Speaker Schedule

  • Nov. 16
    Matt Blakeley-Smith presents: "Restoration of the Willamette River"

    The Willamette River is the bloodline for fish and wildlife in the Willamette Valley, yet over the last 150 years it has been intensively ditched, dammed, and diked. The impacts to spring Chinook salmon are particularly profound, resulting in the listing of the Willamette’s run as endangered. Over the last seven years Greenbelt Land Trust has been working collaboratively with local farm families to revive the Willamette River and bring back these endangered species from the brink of extinction. We’ll discuss the complex social aspects of land conservation as well as the exciting process of creating new wildlife habitat on the floodplain.

    Matt Blakeley-Smith is the habitat restoration coordinator for Greenbelt Land Trust. He moved to Oregon for a 3-month seasonal job at OSU in 1999, but somehow never left. Matt earned a master’s degree in botany along the way and specializes in managing habitat for endangered species. While mostly focused on restoring Greenbelt’s Willamette River properties, Matt also experiments in habitat management for grassland birds, such as western meadowlarks.
