The Network board is bringing back this popular low-cost, high-value training/networking event for Oregon watershed councils. The two-day event will include workshops and a tour on the latest restoration, fundraising, community outreach, and monitoring approaches from across the state, as well as a management track. It will also be a great opportunity to connect with peers in a supportive low-key environment.
