Rural Living Field Day is a fun event for rural landowners and this year the event is a partnership of West Multnomah, Tualatin and Columbia Soil and Water Conservation Districts. The event features speakers addressing a wide variety of topics and covering issues that face rural homeowners, farmers, and land managers every day. Topics include wildlife and pollinator habitat, invasive weeds, small scale agriculture, woodland management, livestock and pasture management and more. Experts will conduct hands-on demonstrations and be available to answer questions about specific landowner concerns.
Morning beverages and snacks will be served as well as a fully catered lunch! The cost is only $10 per person or $15 for families.
Rural Living Field Day is also a great time for landowners to meet each other and share concerns and ideas about their properties and operations. Landowners have also found valuable professional and personal contacts at past events.
