Sage- and Columbian Sharp-Tailed Grouse Virtual Workshop

Workshop webpage.

The Sage- and Columbian Sharp-tailed Grouse Workshop is a biennial meeting held in even numbered years sanctioned by Western Association of Fish and Wildlife Agencies. The workshop provides a forum where leading sage- and sharp-tailed grouse managers and researchers share research results, management strategies, and emerging issues in the realms of grouse management throughout North America.

Workshop Coordinator: Mikal Cline, ODFW Upland Game Bird Coordinator at Mikal.L.Cline@state.or.us.

Invasive Annual Grass Workshop

Workshop information.

Invasive annual grasses threaten millions of acres of sagebrush rangelands across the west. This two day workshop hosted by the Harney County Wildfire Collaborative and Oregon SageCon Partnership will explore the barriers and opportunities for addressing invasive annual grasses in Oregon and beyond the state. In this workshop some of the most pressing issues related to invasive annual grass management will be discussed, including the connection between invasive annual grasses and wildfire and what can be done to better address this threat.

Monday, December 14, 12:30-4:30pm: Defend the Core—Keeping the Good, Good

  • Hard truths of invasive annual grasses
  • Stopping the Spread
  • Supersizing Suppression Success
  • Reducing Wildfire Risk
  • Ratcheting Up Resiliency

Tuesday, December 15, 8:30am-12:30pm: Grow the Core—Restoring At-Risk and Converted Lands

  • Managing Invasive Annual Grasses
  • Innovative Restoration
  • Prioritizing Limited Resources & Sustaining Long-term Investment

Low-tech, process-based riverscape restoration: Virtual workshop

Virtual workshop resources.

This virtual workshop will introduce conservationists to ‘low-tech’ process-based approaches for restoring streams and their associated riparian areas (riverscapes) to benefit fish, wildlife, and working lands. Participants will learn principles guiding low-tech process-based restoration and become familiar with simple, hand-built tools, including Beaver Dam Analogues (BDAs) and Post-Assisted Log Structures (PALS), intended to mimic and promote specific ecosystem processes. Participants will gain basic skills in the planning, design, and implementation phases of project development. Course content is supported by a published Design Manual.

4th Annual National Cohesive Wildland Fire Management Strategy Workshop

Visit the workshop website for more information.

The 4th Annual National Cohesive Wildland Fire Management Strategy Workshop will be in Asheville, North Carolina October 26-30, 2020. The workshop theme is: Hard truths, fantastic failures and magnificent successes of cross-boundary, landscape level and community-wide implementation will focus on the following themes:

  • Significant wildland fire events that are changing the way future fires are addressed,
  • “Fantastic Failures” where alignment of ideas and resources did not produce the desired outcomes,
  • “Magnificent Successes” where collaborative, cross-boundary collaboration, prioritization and investments have led to better wildland fire and landscape scale outcomes.
